Abstract

Three-year investigations were carried out (1997, 1998, 1999) on alluvial soil in the region of Polog - Tetovo. Two factors were subject of investigations: irrigation with maintaining soil humidity at 45, 60 and 70% of field water capacity and mineral nutrition with constant amount of N, P and K (150 kg/ha), It was revealed that revealed that cultural practices applied during investigationshave a sig- nificant effect on physical properties of Burley tobacco. Irrigation and fertilization reduce the substan- tiality of leaf tissue. Irrigation has a greater effect in decreasing the leaf tisuue from 9.26% to 16.59%. These two practices increase the main nerve content from 2.82% to 19.465% and decrease thick- ness of the leaf from 1.55% to 9.22% compared to the check variant (unirrigated, non-fertilized).
