Does anyone else grow their own tobacco? We grow Virginia Gold.

I grow Petite Havana SR-1, Wisconsin 38 and Burley 21. In addition to Nicotiana tabacum I grow Nicotina benthamiana.

Conditions in the greenhouse are probably a lot different than what a field grower is experiencing though.

/if you need me I'll be in my GH spraying for aphids, thrips, whiteflys, and every other pest insect you can imagine.
