North Central Piedmont North Carolina Tobacco Producers' Views Towards The Federal Tobacco Quota Buyout
The study reported here sought to determine North Carolina tobacco producers' perceptions of the current and future state of the tobacco industry. Findings indicate that North Carolina tobacco producers were concerned about the future of the tobacco industry. Respondents agreed that a federal tobacco quota buyout was needed to increase the price competitiveness of United States tobacco as well as the United States' share of the global tobacco market. Respondents also found production controls and FDA regulation over the manufacturing and consumer levels of the industry to be beneficial. The changing tobacco industry will need new educational programming from Extension.
