Harvesting and curing are important phases of tobacco production. There are two major objectives for curing flue-cured tobacco: (1) to provide temperature and humidity conditions that will encourage certain desirable chemical and biological changes, and (2) to preserve the leaf and retain quality through timely drying. This publication describes methods for both harvesting and curing flue-cured tobacco.
