No Rain in Sight, Time to Irrigate Tobacco

— Written By

Tobacco has been without rain ranging from three to four weeks, and some tobacco was planted in dry hills. Irrigation will be needed if no rain is in sight to establish root development, nutrient uptake, and plant health. The last few years have had too much rain, this year not enough. 10 more days without rain with the tobacco this small could be a make or break situation. Water is needed, so go ahead and irrigate.
