Shandong Agricultural University, Dept. of Plant Protection, Taian, Shandong, China
One of the ecological conditions affecting tobacco qualities is soil. Soil types and characters affect the interior and outer qualities of tobacco. 76 soil samples and 26 tobacco samples were collected in Yunnan, Fujian, Guizhou, Henan and Shandong Provinces of China, and analyzed for the soil physical-chemical characteristics and tobacco chemical compounds. Through this study the index of soil physical-chemical characteristics which were most suitable for planting high quality tobacco in China were obtained.
