More market optimism

The leader of the Lexington, Ky., tobacco organization--the Burley Tobacco Growers Cooperative--is "cautiously optimistic" that there will be considerable opportunity to sell the coming US crop in the growing markets of Eastern Europe and Asia. Brian Furnish, general manager of the BTGC, said China continues to be the best target of opportunity for American burley. “Even a small piece of that market would be great for us,” said Furnish. Indonesia would be the next leading target after China, he said.
