I believe the tobacco is cured. It is 'in order' or moist enough to handle to make 'hands' of tobacco: those things with a leaf holding the hand together. Those hands will be taken to a warehouse then auctioned off. They are stripping tobacco. If it were very dry, it would crumble.

It is called grading.

This is already cured. They are tying it for sale at the market.
