Is the production of tobacco a problem with water resources?



  1. 0 Votes

    As with any crop, to receive maximum yields of tobacco, farmers must irrigate their crops. While the tobacco industry does not have nearly the impact on water supply as do crops such as corn, it still takes around 1 inch/week in order to maximize crop yields. The reason its impact is not as great is due to the fact that tobacco crops do not take up as much land as food crops like corn. One could make the argument, however, that tobacco is an unnecessary crop because no one actually needs tobacco to survive the way we need food.
