Influence of method and degree of sucker control on the concentration of duvatrienediols, yield, and quality of flue-cured tobacco
North Carolina State University, Dept. of Soil Science, Raleigh, NC, USA
Certain cultural practices affect the concentration of duvatrienediols (alpha and beta-4, 8, 13-duvatriene-1,3-diols) in flue-cured tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.) leaves. Suckers (axillary buds) are removed manually or chemically to enhance overall...
