Investigations were made in 2014 and 2015 in the field of the Scientific Tobacco Institute - Prilep with six tobacco varieties and lines in fertile and CMS form, originating from the United States, Bulgaria and Macedonia. The investigations were initiated to satisfy the needs of Macedonian manufacturers for Burley tobacco, which so far has been obtained only from imports. Results of the investigations showed that even in the region of Prilep, which is not very suitable for production of Burley tobacco, domestic male sterile hybrid lines B-209/13 CMS F1 and B-225/13 CMS F1 can be successfully cultivated in conditions of good farming practices (fertilization, irrigation, etc.). The analysis of the 5th, 10th and 15th leaf and total leaf number lead to the conclusion that these lines can give good yields and quality typical of Burley tobacco.
