Tobacco: Growing It

Record #:
For most of the 20th-century, farmers in North Carolina have depended on tobacco for a large part of their income. Tobacco holds a dominant position in the state's agricultural market, with the plant grown in 91 of the state's one 100 counties. Parker discusses challenges facing tobacco growers, including foreign imports, concerns over smoking and health, and the government's longstanding allocation system.
