Extreme weather conditions this week will be hard on tobacco. Plants that have depleted the supply of moisture in the soil will wilt from the hot sun’s rays on the southwestern side of the plant. Six week old tobacco requires and uses under normal conditions approximately 0.15 to 0.20 inches of water per day.  Irrigation should be of a significant amount (1 inch or more) to last several days before requiring an additional pass.
