Conducted on an Ocilla loamy sand soil fertilized with 1000 lbs/a of 6-6-18 and 120 lbs/a 16-0-0 with plants spaced
20-22 inches apart in 44-inch rows.
1.  Price Index based on two-year average (2001-2002) prices for U.S. government grades.
2.  Numerical values ranging from 1-99 for flue-cured tobacco based on equivalent government grades - higher the
     number, higher the grade.  Some varieties are not shown due to low plant counts from TSWV.
Some varieties are not included because of poor stand.
Researched by Stevan S. LaHue and M. G. Stephenson, under project S1-71 and supported by grants from the
Georgia Tobacco Commission.
