During the three-year investigations (2009, 2010, 2011), comparative trials were carried out in the experimental field of Tobacco Institute – Prilep with tobacco varieties YK 7-4/2 Ø, MK-1, MB-2 and MB-3 and the check variety YK 7-4/2, using randomized block system with 5 replications. Chemical analyses were made in the accredited laboratory of the Institute, according to standard and internationally recognized methods in order tostudy the following chemical properties: nicotine, protein and soluble sugars contents in % and Shmuk‟s quality index. According to the chemical composition of dry tobacco in the investigated varieties, the content of nicotine increases from the lower to the upper belts, ranging from 0.59% in the check variety to 2.34% in MK-1. The soluble sugars content ranged from 8.66% in the lower belt of MB-2 variety to the maximum 22.65% in the upper belts of MK-1variety. The lower protein content in the investigated Basma varieties indicates a better quality of this tobacco compared to the check. Shmuk‟s index of quality is positive in all the varieties and its highest value was estimated in the upper belts.
