Tobacco producers are always interested in new tobacco varieties, and are continually searching for the "best" variety. Producers receive information about varieties from a number of sources including; research and extension publications, county extension agents, neighbors, farm supply workers, and seed producers. To help producers evaluate varieties, county agents in cooperation with tobacco specialists conduct many burley tobacco variety trials at the county level.
