I role hurley tobacco
should be topped well in advance
of tharveatij&jl. Both yield and
quality will improve to an extent
that will farinof than pay for the
labor coat of topping. In any event,
since moat barley tobacco is stalk
cured, it is necessary to remove
the tops at some stage before har
vest. Topping before the seed
heads have developed to any great
extent will usually noticeably im
prove the yield and quality, especi
ally in the upper one-half of the
plant, and will reduce firing of
the bottom leaves. Topped tobacco
suffers less damage from high
winds during the latter part of
the growing season.
Hurley tobacco should be topped
when the seed heads show 60 to
66 percent bloom. It is best to
delay topping until at least 76 per
cent of the plants can be topped
during the first trip through the
field. Earlier topping may slight
ly increase yields but this will u
sually Affcet by the added cost
of suckering. Some- sacrifice in
yield will generally result from la
ter topping.
The height at which buriey to
bacco should be topped is depen
dent upon a number of factors, in
cluding (1) the variety concerned,
(2) the level of fertility at which
it is grown, (8) weather con
ditions, particularly r a i n f a 1 1,
4) time of growing sea
