One of the most efficient ways in which new technologies can help farmers to add value to their crop is through seed breeding, currently also known as Variety Breeding. The correct selection, suitable allocation and proper management of tobacco varieties are determining factors for successful tobacco growing. Therefore, the development of improved varieties assumes not only a commercial importance, but also a strategic one, which is capable of bringing a significant impact on the agribusiness.
