Policy Reform in the Tobacco Industry: Producers Adapt to a Changing Market

by Linda Foreman & William McBride
Paperback, 20 pages, 2011, $20.00
ISBN: 1437986624

The Fair and Equitable Tobacco Reform Act of 2004 eliminated tobacco quotas and tobacco price supports and allowed producers to plant any amount or type of tobacco regardless of geographic location. Flue-cured tobacco producers (FCTP) made greater adjustments to their operations after the buyout than did burley tobacco producers (BTP). FCTP were more likely to increase tobacco acres per farm, pushing up the tobacco acreage per farm at a faster rate compared with BTP. They also invested more per farm after 2004. With over 75% of tobacco farms using hired or contract labor in 2008, the availability and cost of workers have become increasingly important to tobacco producers. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand report.
