Scientific Tobacco Institute - Prilep possesses a rich collection of varieties and lines of Virginia and Burley tobaccos, which has been well maintained and regularly enriched. As a result of intensive breeding, many varieties and lines of these types have been created, distinguished by their high yields and quality.
The aim of this investigation is to present the basic characteristics of both registered varieties and the newly created perspective lines.
- The presented varieties and lines were obtained by intervarietal hybridization, all of them in male-sterile form. Later, they were included in varietal trials.
- The results of Burley tobacco breeding show that, starting from the first registered Macedonian Burley B-96/85 CMS F1, each following variety (line) were increased in size, number of leaves and yields (e.g., from 3000 kg/ha in B-96/85 CMS F1 to 4350 kg/ha in Pelagonec CMS F1). The quality and number of dry leaves were typical for Burley tobacco.
- The results for Virginia show that, starting from the first registered variety of Macedonian Virginia MV-1, all subsequent lines had larger dimensions, higher leaf number and increased yields (e.g., from 2500 kg/ha in MV-1 to 3591 kg/ha in the line V-88/09 CMS F1. The color of dry leaves in most of these lines was golden yellow, which is typical for this type of tobacco.
