The authors of a new book on organic tobacco point out that growers can make up to twice the amount of money per pound for their commodity, compared to conventionally-grown tobacco. "Organic Tobacco Growing In America and Other Earth-Friendly Farming" tells them how.
The market appears to be a growing one. The Santa Fe Natural Tobacco Company, maker of Natural American Spirit brand organic cigarettes and a client of at least several of the authors, doubled the amount of organic tobacco it processed in 2008.
The new book is a guide on how to grow organic tobacco but the authors say it is also more than that; it is also a treatise on "sustainable, earth-friendly farming." Check the publication out by visiting shopping.yahoo.com and then searching on the term "organic tobacco book."
The book, written by Mark Smith, Mike Little, Mark K. Smith, Fielding Daniel and Jim Haskins, is available on Yahoo.com at a range of prices from $9.74 to $14.39.
