Images linked in this section are intended to show the typical presentation of common diseases, insects, and other disorders that can impact tobacco production.  While these images may be an aid to the identification of specific problems on tobacco they should not be used as a method of positive identification.  Environmental conditions, stage of growth, type of tobacco affected, and severity of problem can all affect how the symptoms look at any given point.  Tobacco growers with suspected disorders of tobacco are encouraged to contact their local Extension offices for assistance with positive identification and corrective actions.
