Abstract: Ohio's Burley tobacco agriculture is concentrated in a relatively small portion of southern Ohio and is significant as a primary cash crop for the region. In four of the 10 leading Burley-tobacco-producing counties, Burley tobacco ranks as the leading cultivated crop of the county, and in one county leads all agricultural commodities produced there in value. The type of farm on which Burley tobacco is grown varies from the predominately marginal farms situated in the hilly portions of the growing region to generaltype farms located on more level land. Two crops which have been suggested as possible alternatives or additions to improve the economy of Burley tobacco growers are grapes and strawberries.
