Later Printing. From the preface: “Despite the ever-increasing importance of the tobacco crop in our agricultural economy and the remarkable increase in recent years in production and consumption of tobacco products, no comprehensive textbook on tobacco production has appeared in the United States since the turn of the century. The present volume represents an effort to supply the rather obvious need of a text affording a concise, reasonably comprehensive survey of the essential features of tobacco production and its problems, including the interrelations of other phases of the industry. It is written for the use of students in the agricultural colleges and universities, and for agricultural workers and planners who require a broad background of information on the fundamentals of tobacco production. There has been in recent years an increasing interest in research relating to both tobacco production improvement and the technical phases of processing and manufacture of leaf tobacco and the advances that have been made appear to have opened up very promising lines of study for the immediate future. It is hoped that this volume will serve largely to indicate the present status of tobacco production research and its principal needs for the immediate future.”
