The article focuses on the marketing challenges faced by farmers in the U.S. The U.S. tobacco crop is still the standard, but for a number of years it is showing decline in acreage. The U.S. growers are lacking in their knowledge and ability to market what they grow. The article thus stresses the need for marketing. There are different ways to market. The important thing is that it is done. It will likely no longer be enough just to grow the crop without a thought of where it's going to be sold. The article discusses about opportunities to learn about marketing like extension meetings that feature marketing topics.
