New Aromatic Tobacco
Booklet Is Published

the North Carolina Agricultural Ex
tension Service has published a new
booklet on the subject and has made

it available to Tar Heel farmers
through their county agents or by
writing to State College.
Commonly referred to as “Turkish”
tobacco, aromatic is used by all major
Hgarette manufacturers in the, produc
tion of cigarettes. It is blended with
domestic bright leaf and hurley to pro
duce the cigarettes familiar to the
American public. At present, manu
facturers need more than 80,000,000
pounds of aromatic tobacco each year.
In the past most of the tobacco was
imported from Turkey, Greece, Bul
garia and Russia.
Experiments since 1939 has shown
that aromatic tobacco of equal quality
anid value can be produced on many
of the soils in Piedmont North Caro
lina, Virginia and South Carolina. Re
sults obtained from producing the
crop under actual farm conditions
since 1945 indicate that it will supple
ment the income of farmers and will
fit in well with rotations and farm- \
ing practices common to the Piedmont
and mountain counties.
The new booklet, “Aromatic Tobac
co Production,” Extension Circular No.
375, is a revision of a 'booklet pub
lished by the Extension Service in
1949. The 1949 booklet was prepared j
for the Extension Service by R. R. •
Darkin and J. R. Mattison of [Duke "
University. The new publication is
edited by Roy H. Crouse, extension
tobacco specialist. It may be obtain
