I was horrified by all the bad stuff that goes into tobacco and tobacco fertilizer. Last year I decided I wanted to grow my own. It can be done organically but it is quite a task. The Havana Gold tobacco I grow takes a ton of nutrients. I used nearly all of my compost on this one crop. After a successful harvest air drying is the next step followed by curing, and another week or so of drying. I ended up making some good organically grown cigarettes to give to my friends that still smoke. However, I won't be planting any this year. It takes too much resources for too little return.
