Tobacco. [Newspaper Article] — The Richmond River Herald and Northern Districts Advertiser — 18 February 1887

Tobaeco. The process of curing tho English grown tobacco crop has been very successful, and the ' handed ' crop is expected to be worth from 6d to 8d per lb. As there is a crop of 15cwt of cured tobacco from three-quarters of an acre, worth .£42, the crop may thus be said to yield a net return of £56 per acre. Messrs. Carter, of Bromley, who made the trial, have shown clearly that tobacco can be grown and cured in Great Britain, and that the excise duty and restrictions are all that stand in the way of its becoming a farm crop.
