Burley and dark tobacco review for 2013 and 2014 outlook

-A A +A
By Rick Greenwell

2013 Review
Following a 25 percent decline in world burley production in 2012, tobacco buyers were hopeful that the U.S. would supply more burley in 2013.  

World burley production likely rebounded in 2013, but most of the growth occurred in lower quality/filler-style markets.

U.S. burley contract volume and acres planted were up in 2013, but excessive rains in some areas destroyed acreage and likely caused yields to fall.  

According to the USDA, 2013 U.S. burley production is forecast at 201.7 million pounds (-2 percent).
