Fire More Counties Enter The Turkish \ Tobacco Program Growers In Alexander, Swain, Jackson, Graham and Macon counties have tentative plans lor beginning the production of Turkish tobacco this year, re ports R. H. Crouse, agronomy specialist tor the State College Extension Service. Last year, Turkish was grown in Ashe, Al leghany, Watauga, Wilkes and Caldwell. Altogeher, Crouse said, these 10 counties will produce about 50 to 55 acres of the Turkish leaf in 1949. Since the leaves are very small and the crop requires a great deal of hand labor, most growers will plant about one fourth acre each, but b few who have sufficient harvest labor available will plant half an acre each. Aromatic Turkish leaf, im portant in the manufacture of popular brands of American cig arettes, waa produced commer cially in the United States last year for the first time. An aver age price of 80.7 cents per pound was paid to 87 Tar Heel growers who produced a total crop of 21,646 pounds and sold it for a total of $17,469.22.
