Abstract

Flue-cured tobacco acreage per farm expanded during the last two decades because of growers' desire to enhance their incomes, availability and use of more labor-efficient production and harvesting practices, and Government policies that encouraged larger quotabholdings. These trends caused continuing changes in the structure for flue-cured tobacco production. The proportion of producers who both own and rent their quota rose relative to those who produced either with all-owned or all-rented quota. Labor used for planting, growing, and harvesting the flue-cured tobacco crop has declined during the last two decades, but use of migrant labor has increased. This study examines the structure of flue-cured tobacco farming in four Southeastern States and updates several previous studies.
