Power Loss Related to Tobacco Curing
Here are some links to information concerning power loss during curing and generator capacity. Hopefully this will not be needed, but the threat is possible in the next 48 hours. As many of you know, the end of the yellowing phase and the early part of leaf drying during curing is the most critical time if power goes down (48 to 72 hours into the process). The tobacco will overheat rapidly during this time, especially in box containers. Any barns loaded today or yesterday, which will be many, are in that critical window if a power outage occurs over the weekend. The links discuss the concerns.
