QUESTION: I want to select the
best tobacco plantbed site possible
this year. Do you have any tips?
ANSWER: Select a deep fertile
loamy soil that will warm up
quickly. Avoid heavy clay soils
that bake or crust easily, especial
ly when cyanamid, or urea and cy
anamid is used. The soil sould be
well drained, but not one that
dries out too quickly. Avoid dry
ridges. The bed should be located
near a convenient water supply A
soil high in organic matter seems
to be helpful in getting good stands
and promoting growth.
QUESTION: When using
new ground for a tobacco
plantbed don’t you have a lot
to trouble from weeds?
ANSWER: Usually, yes. But

good plants, with not too
much weed trouble, are being
produced by using methyl
bromide in the fall or winter
rate of nine pounds per 100
square yards. This chemical al
so gives good nematode con
trol. It is used as a gas and
must be kept in contact vvhh
the soil for 24 to 36 hours
with a gas-tight cover.
QUESTION: Just what seeding
rate is suggested for tobacco plant
ANSWER: The exact seeding
rate will depend on just how well
the bed is prepared and how well
it will be managed. The suggest'd
rate is one-fourth ounce per 100
square yards where average man
agement is provided. Many grow
ers are finding that they can get
good stands with as little as one
sixlh ounce per 100 square yards
it the beds are smoothed before
seeding, well managed, and water
ed at seed germination time.
