Effects of Specialized Curing on the Income and Behavior of Tobacco Growers

Qingshuitang Village near the Qingmuchi Village is taken as the control region, which has similar status of social economy and flue-cured tobacco cultivation and has not implemented specialized curing. Permanent residents above the age of 18 in the two villages are investigated. Due to the dispersibility and randomness of samples, questionnaires are sent out randomly considering the differences in age, sex, education level, economic income and planting area. Excel is used to conduct statistics and analysis of survey data. Result shows that specialized curing has significant higher incentive effect on economic income of tobacco growers than the non-specialized curing. Tobacco growers in specialized curing area have apparently different attentive focus of future development, compared with the growers in non-specialized curing area. Specialized curing area focuses more on the improvement of technology, management and supporting industries; while growers in non-specialized curing area think that working outside is main way to improve the current situation. However, there are certain problems in specialized curing needed to be improved, such as operation mechanism, internal management, extension and application. Finally, it is pointed out that we should correctly handle the relationship between the income increase from specialized curing and the economic development, subject clarification and support enhancement, so as to ensure the sustainable development of specialized curing and to improve the economic income of tobacco growers effectively.
