  • Develop a standardized nornicotine screening protocol so that baseline levels of nornicotine are comparable in tobacco seed varieties used by investigators

  • Coordinator and Chair

    • Lowell Bush, University of Kentucky

  • The TSNA TASK Force determination

    • No action is required

      • Variability among procedures negligible


Objective 2
Objective 2:

Objective 3:

  • Develop a collaborative study to investigate standard deviation for moisture content within farmer marketing packages among origins

  • No projects developed


Objective 4
Objective 4:

  • Develop a collaborative study which uses hobo loggers or a suitable substitute to collect curing conditions and possible impact of TSNA levels for tobacco of diverse origins and curing environments. Attempt to standardize placement of equipment and sample protocols

  • Coordinator and Chair

    • Christian de Roton, Altadis Institutdu Tabac

Protocol

  • Use preferably a Low nornicotine line of burley or dark air cured tobacco

  • Place hobo-loggers at a representative point in the barn and outside the barn

  • Record dates, observations at curing phases

    • Molds, darkening, fermentation, and other curing incidents

  • Take a representative sample of upper-middle leaves around the hobo-logger for TSNA, NO2-, nornicotine and grade

  • Evaluate the grade and quality of each variety
