North Carolina tobacco farmers are finding themselves between a rock and a hard place as they face an unexpected cost problem in the operation of mechanized bulk curing barns. The farmers’ concern is shared by the state’s power suppliers because the problem relates to the electricity needed to operate the curers. North Carolina State University agricultural engineers plan to begin experimenting soon to find ways of making bulk barns more energy efficient.
