Introducing Three New Varieties!
This hybrid has the potential to be high yielding, excellent quality tobacco. PVH 2254 has high rusticity and adaptability to different types of soil and climate. It is resistant to TMV and root knot nematode Meloidogyne incognita, races 1 and 3, and has high tolerance to bacterial wilt. PVH2254 also has excellent holding-ability in the field; it cures easily and tends to produce more leaves compared to traditional cultivars, like K 326. To obtain the best results in terms of yield and quality, the plants should be topped with a maximum of 24 leaves.
This normal cycle hybrid is known for its cured leaf of excellent quality, high productivity, adaptability and the good holding-ability in the field. PVH1600 has high tolerance to bacterial wilt and moderate tolerance to Black Shank race 1. Furthermore, it is resistant to Globodera nematodes and root-knot nematodes Meloidogyne incognita race 1 and 3 and to Black Shank race 0.
Released by North Carolina State University's tobacco breeding program for the 2017 season, NC 938 is a hybrid developed for an excellent combination of yield (comparable to K326) and race 0 and race 1 black shank resistance (comparable to K346). NC 938 has intermediate tolerance to Granville Wilt. It is susceptible to TMV and PVY, but does provide resistance to Root Knot nematode Race 1 & 3.
