Water content in tobacco plant is variable and is closely related to tobacco variety, stage of development, plant organs (root, stem and leaf), climate conditions during the growing season and other factors. In 2009, 2010 and 2011 investigations were carried out on green : dry mass ratio in four tobacco varieties - one of the type Yaka (YK 7-4/2), used as a check, and three of the type Basmak (MK-1 MB-2 and MB-3). Varieties MK - 1 and MB- 3 participate with smaller amounts of green mass to yield 1 kg dry mass (MK - 1 with 4.983 kg and MB- 3 with 5.262 kg). Somewhat higher share of green mass to obtain 1 kg dry mass was recorded with the check variety YK 7-4/2 (5365 kg) and with MB-2 (5575 kg). The aim of our investigations was to present qualitative characteristics of investigated varieties, since it is considered that varieties which contain lower amounts of water have a better quality.
