Virginia tobacco varieties and hybrids suitable for manual and mechanical leaf harvesting

B"lgarski Tyutyun 26(4): 16-22

Virginia tobacco varieties and hybrids suitable for manual and mechanical leaf harvesting

In a study of 12 introduced varieties and of 11 hybrids and one mutant bred in Bulgaria at the Tobacco Institute, Plovdiv, the forms with the shortest stems, most suitable for mechanical harvesting, were Spate 28 Spate 45A, Coker 411, Mutant 890 and the hybrids 0374, 0372 and 0369. The longest leaves were found in Coker 254, Coker 347, Strain 205, McNair 133, Mutant 890 and the hybrids 0375, 0374 and 0192.
