Agronomic and chemical characteristics of certain old-line varieties of flue-cured tobacco



Agronomic and chemical characteristics of certain old-line varieties of flue-cured tobacco



Tobacco new York 154(5): 19-24



For many years prior to 1950 most varieties of flue-cured tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) had similar characteristics. Recently however, many new varieties which display fundamentally different characteristics have been produced. Some of the germplasm of many of the old-line varieties may be useful in present and future tobacco breeding programs; therefore, descriptions of these varieties should be recorded and seed maintained. To meet this need 50 old-line varieties of flue-cured tobacco were planted in comparative tests in 1958 and 1960. Most of them were grown commercially prior to 1950 but are no longer planted generally. The varieties were Adcock X Harrison Pryor, Adcock X Pinckney Arthur, Banana Leaf, Bells no 1, Big Gem, Bonanza, Bottom Special, Broad Leaf Orinoco, Burch's Special, Cabbage, Cash, Delcrest, D. H. Currin, Dukane, Faucette Special, Gold Dollar, Griffin Special, Harrison Special, Harrison Pryor, Hicks, Jamaica, Jamaica Wrapper, Lemon Bright, Mammoth Gold, Mammoth Yellow, Oxford 1, Oxford 2, Oxford 3, Oxford 26, Oxford 32, Oxford 201, Oxford 202, Oxford 403, Paris Wrapper, Pinckney Arthur, Robertson, Silk Leaf, Silver Dollar, Hickory Pryor, Southern Beauty, Va. Bright Leaf, Va. Gold, Warne, White Mammoth, White Stem Orinoco, Yellow Mammoth, Yellow Pryor, Yellow Special, 400 and 401 (Cherry Red Free). Hicks (Hicks Broadleaf) was included as a standard of comparison because its performance record is well documented. Data are presented on certain agronomic, chemical and physical characteristics of these varieties.
