Spring 2015 Crop: From Seedling to Soil
Spring is in the air and that means it's time to plant tobacco at the FSG farm in Clermont, Florida! Last week we planted 60,000 seedlings, all grown from authentic Cuban Corojo '99 seed. Each January, in the greenhouse, we start our seeds in styrofoam float-bed trays. Sixty days later you have a heathy seedling with a nice pyramid-shaped root mass that will tap deep into our sandy soils.
