Burley tobacco revolutionized the industry in east Tennessee and western North Carolina. What started from two farmers planting white burley in Greeneville ignited an agricultural revolution and significantly changed crops, production and quality. Burley transformed the tobacco industry with new cultivation techniques and a shift from dark and flue-cured tobacco. By the 1990s, burley tobacco production in the region had drastically declined, and it is a tradition that few local farmers still practice. Agricultural experts Billy Yeargin and Christopher Bickers take a nostalgic look at the historic rise of burley tobacco and its gradual decline.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Billy Yeargin, Christopher BickersPublisher: History Press Library EditionsPublished: 04/27/2015ISBN: 9781540213754Pages: 162Weight: 0.85lbsSize: 9.00h x 6.00w x 0.44d
