Tobacco tours set

            The 2011 Georgia-Florida Tobacco Tour will begin with a kick-off supper at Mixon's Pond House in Waresboro, Ga., on Monday, June 13, and will end near Lake City, Fla., on Wednesday, June 15. 
The 2011 North Carolina Tobacco Tour will take place July 18-20. For more details, go to the website www.cals.ncsu.edu/plantpath/extension/commodities/tobacco/tobacco-tour.html. 
            The Kentucky Burley Tobacco Tour will take place August 15 and 16.  “This is later than normal, which would be August 1 and 2,” said Bob Pearce, Kentucky Extension tobacco specialist. “But with the late planting, the later date will give us the best opportunity to see the status of the crop.”
