Tobacco (Nicotiana tabaccum L.) is an annual industrial crop whose height varies greatly depending on the variety. It is a crop grown for the use of tobacco leaf in the tobacco industry in the production of cigarettes, cigars and other tobacco products. At the end of the vegetation when the tobacco leaf has been already harvested, the stem and flower bud leaves are mostly left unused and plowed back to the soil (rarely used for production of paper, cork, biofuel or in the energy production industries). The purpose of this paper is to investigate the different varieties of tobacco, and to see how quantitative their waste material is, and to be used as an alternative bio-energy material. The trial was performed at the experimental field at the Scientific Institute for Tobacco – Prilep. As the material ten dry stalks from nine varieties were used from different varieties of tobacco such as: oriental type (P-12-2/1 Ø, Jebbel – 38, Jebel N 0 1, JK-23, Izmir) semi-oriental type (O-9- 18/2 and Maya-96), and largeleaf type (B-21 and V-90/13). At the end of the vegetation period, after harvesting, the stalks were cut and weighed and left to dry in the biological laboratory. The next step was measuring the stalks after drying, in order to get a real picture for their weight. The obtained data were statistically processed: (x ̅) mean (δ) standard deviation (Ѕδ) average error standard deviation (CV) coefficient of variability. From the obtained values of the tested variants, we distinguish the semi-oriental variety Maya-96 and the virgin V-90/13 which have the highest percentage of waste material. The participation of other varieties should not be neglected and there are opportunities for use of tobacco stalks as bio energy material.
Key words: Tobacco stalks, variety, bioenergy material
