Bulk Cured Tobacco Unharmed by Peak-Load Control System

Record #:
A North Carolina State University study examined bulk curers on twenty-four farms in Red Springs of Robeson County to determine whether a load control program would adversely affect tobacco production and farmers’ attitudes. The study found that tobacco is completely unharmed when cured in bulk barns where the fans are automatically turned off for brief periods when demand for electricity is highest.
