Tobacco. Cigarette growing


Tobacco everywhere

Tobacco is grown all over the world, from Poland to South Africa, from Argentina to Canada, and from the western Philippines to Mexico. But cigar tobacco is mainly grown in the suburbs.

Origin of cigarettes

Tobacco is known as a plant native to America. Some species have been found in the South Pacific. There are many varieties and varieties. Not all of them are used in smoking products. Many are grown as ornamental plants, as they often bloom, showing colors ranging from white to dark red and purple.

Here are some of the countries where tobacco is grown to produce your cigars.


Argentina is cultivating dark air-purified cigarettes in the provinces of Mississippi and Koryans, and cigarettes treated in the Salta area. Misiones also has Burley-type production. These cigarettes are mainly for cigarettes, but Corrientes is rated for short stuffed cigars because of its taste. Argentina has previously been a major producer and exporter, but changes in economic and income tax policies have seriously damaged production, making cigarettes too expensive to compete in the international market. Consequently, production volumes have declined.


Brazil is one of the world's largest producers of cigarettes. The eastern central state of Bahia is an important tobacco growing area, located 100 miles west of the capital, Salvador da Bahia, an active port on the Atlantic coast. The northern state of Alagoas hosts production in the city of Arapiracana, where Maduro cigarettes are grown. The southern states of Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina produce tobacco for cigarettes and pipes.


Cameroon cigars are growing in the eastern part of the country. The growing area extends along the eastern border into the Republic of Central Africa. The wraps are air grown by small farmers, free of fertilizers and pesticides. The average plant size is approximately one acre. The seed is originally from the city of Sumatra, introduced in the country shortly after World War II. The first cultivated tobacco for French monopoly needs was offered on the international market when production was too large for this single use. Well-appreciated by European producers and major American cigar companies, Cameroon's production has declined in the late 1980s due to poor management. Today the quantities are small and the quality can be better.


China is, in fact, the largest producer of cigarettes – about 5 million metric tons. The US tracks about 1 million metric tons. Chinese cigarettes are a flu-free type, not aromatic and slightly spicy. This cigarette is not suitable for cigars. It is mainly used for the use of local cigarettes. A small amount is exported. The tobacco industry imports cigarettes and uses them as a neutral and inexpensive filler.

Connecticut, USA

The Connecticut Valley in the northeast of the United States is known for its bright yellow cigar wrap. Due to the very hot and sunny summer, cigarettes grow in the shade. The man who was sitting next to the window in Hartford, couldn't see the huge white area of ​​land that was standing all over. Fields of cigarettes covered in white to protect plants from direct sunlight. And here are the huge barns, which look like temples, ready to cure the flu. Impressive!


Tobacco grows all over Cuba. I hope your premium cigar is made from cigarettes coming from Western Vuelta Abajo, where really good stuff is being collected. In Central and Eastern Cuba, the states of Remedios and Oriente are smoking, which is probably unacceptable for what everyone calls Havana.

Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic is a traditional tobacco producing country. In the 1960s, Cuban seeds were introduced, and as a result cigarettes (Pilot Cubano) became known as a good substitute for Cuban cigarettes that were no longer allowed to enter the United States. The deported Cubans did a great job there. Piloto Cubano is a full-fledged cigarette but may lack some flavor. With a more aromatic blend of Olor dominicano type, Piloto Cubano makes 100% Dominican cigars a very decent cigar. The two Dominican types are good ingredients for many different blends.

Eastern Mediterranean countries

The eastern Mediterranean countries are devoted to the Eastern type of cigarette culture, which is sun-protective. Greece, Turkey and Bulgaria are the main producers, but Lebanon, Syria, Macedonia and Romania are also growing. This cigar has small leaves that are sometimes only 2 inches long. The sun treatment gives them a yellow color and high sugar content. The aroma is generally rich and in the blend a little bit of eastern cigar blends in with the taste. This cigarette is not used for long stuffed cigars, but only for short fills in cigars and cigarettes.


Ecuador is a great place to grow shelters because it is on the equator. And it has rich soils too. Weather conditions with an overcast cloudy sky provide a natural shade, protecting the wrapped plants from the sun and allowing the cigar to thin and lighten. Ecuador supplies Connecticut and Sumatra-type blankets to many tobacco factories around the world.


Honduras has a good reputation for making premium cigars. The country is a fairly small producer of cigarettes, and cigars are mostly made from imported leaves. However, Honduras has a good potential for growing cigarettes, especially wrapped pans, and may become a major player in the future.


Tobacco is grown in many islands of the Archipelago, but as for cigars, Sumatra and Java are the settlements. Sumatra wrappers are known worldwide. Central Java (Vorstenland) and East Java (Besuki) abound in fillers and wrappers. Indonesia is the main country of cigarettes.


Dark air purified cigarettes are produced in Mexico, mainly in the provinces of Vera Cruz and Tampico, along the East Coast Golf Course. There is also some production in Yucatan. Formerly a state-owned operation, it is now run by private individuals and cooperatives. Mexican cigarettes are very dark, and the best leaves can be used as maduro wraps. In San Andrés de Tuchtla (Vera Cruz) is a very interesting production of Sumatra Seeds.


Tobacco cultivation in the Philippines is concentrated in the northern part of the main island of Luzon. Traditionally, dark cigarettes were grown for cigars, and the Philippines & # 39; cigars were very popular under the mighty Compania General de Tabaccos de Filipinas. They probably dropped because they were too soft. Today, the Philippines is still growing dark cigarettes and developing the production of blond cigarettes for blonde hair.


Zimbabwe is in the top three for high-quality cigarettes (along with the US and Brazil). The embargo that struck the country while it was still Rhodesia did not harm production. This made the Rhodesians more inventive, and they began to produce. At the moment Zambia and Tanzania, the other countries were selling a lot. When the embargo was lifted in 1980, which allowed us to deal directly, we found a fascinating organization and equipment that was the best in the world. Tobacco was the country's main business, and getting a job with a cigarette was a challenge for many young men. The real Zimbabwean agrarian policy that we have won and discussed here is likely to bring this country off the list of tobacco producers. The cigarette industry will not suffer as it mainly deals with cigarettes cleaned with the flu. The main beneficiary of this situation should be Brazil.
