The nine-point, all practice method of growing tobacco has boosted per-acre income from less than $1000 to $2000 for farmers in Apex, North Carolina. The all practice system includes soil testing, top-soiling, rotation, use of drainage tile, proper use of terraces and/or strip cropping, subsoiling, careful selection of fertilizers, use of well-adapted varieties, and fumigation of nematode-infested soil.
