The article presents some suggestions for burley growers. It reports that managing a burley tobacco crop calls for some major modifications in one's management scheme. First, one is supposed to make sure one is planting in well-suited fields. They may not be the same ones that one has grown fluecured on. No burley variety is resistant to Granville wilt, and many are susceptible to root knot nematode. Secondly one should be cautious about building curing facilities. Burley requires less time in the field, therefore one must be sure to transplant it immediately after flue cured. It also states that one must manage blue mold diseases of burley.
