Tobacco Communities Facing Change

Fred Gale

Rural America/ Rural Development Perspectives, 1999, vol. 14, issue 1

Abstract: Legislation designed to combat smoking could have important consequences for the many communities where tobacco is grown and processed. Tobacco’s economic role has declined in most communities. The most vulnerable communities are those where tobacco production costs are high, farms are small, and where alternative crops and nonfarm opportunities are limited. Focusing development efforts on the most vulnerable communities could help blunt the economic effects of reduced tobacco use.
