Volume 18, Issue 3 , December 2016, , Pages 673-682

http://dx.doi.org/10.22059/jci.2016.56628

Abstract
  Nitrogen (N) affects adversely the tobacco yield quantity and quality as it increases yield, Chlorine and nicotine contents, but decrease potassium content. This experiment was aimed at optimization of (the balance between) N concentration in leaf, stem and root to increase both yield quantity and quality ...  Read More
