When your tobacco has been stripped, sort it (on the farm) into its respective groups. Sort in daylight or under fluorescent lighting, never by yellow (muzda) electric or lantern light.
After the sticks of tobacco have been carefully sorted and checked, they should be packed on the truck in the following order: first, the sticks of the lowest quality, then the flyings, then the next quality, etc. Next load the high quality lugs. The leaf is then loaded, beginning with that of the highest quality and then in the order of quality to the lowest.
