The province of Pinar del Río, Cuba's largest tobacco producer, is on the verge of a good campaign, which is appreciable in the health of the plantations and the drying process of the leaves.

Despite the drought in the northern part of the territory, a higher quality in the tobacco leaves than the previous season is seen, Virginio Novo, an agricultural specialist from Tabacuba group in the province, told ACN.

He emphasized that there is an area of harvest rising to 18, 245 hectares, a figure that exceeds the agreed planting plan, while 79.8 percent of the harvest have been already collected.

Conditions are being currently created in areas for collection and re-growth after the main harvest, which will help ensure compliance with the production plan of more than 19,200 tons of tobacco in the campaign.

The experienced producers of Pinar del Río strive to maintain the recognition won by the Cuban cigars worldwide.
