How We Can Help?
Forestry is an integral part of most tobacco farms. Wood and wood products are used for construction of barns in burley tobacco as well as in the curing of tobacco leaf in flue cured and dark western tobacco. The Forestry section is, therefore, involved in:
- Promotion of tree planting through development of forestry plans and provision of inputs such as tree seeds and polythene tubes;
- Development of extension messages on forestry and training of Extension Agents, and;
- Liaison with other institutions on forestry issues.
