Reforestation

The figures of the sector are so impressive that they make other crops feel jealous. They include very high forest cover rates, 27%, on average, of all tobacco growers’ holdings are covered with forests. The grower awareness work conducted by the farm technicians toward this end, is complemented by means of seminars in the communities. The move consists in giving directives on the exclusive use of wood of legal origin for their curing-barn needs, preferably planted by the growers themselves, ensuring great savings and huge environmental gains.
