Wisconsin Seedleaf tobacco is used chiefly as a cigar binder, and can be used as a cigar filler or in pipe and cigarette blends.  The plants are very attractive, with large, broad, leaves.  

We grow tobacco to use an insecticide on our plants and chickens.  I grind tobacco leaves up and use it as a dust on the chickens for mites/Lice.  I also soak tobacco leaves in water to make a concoction to spray on bugs in the garden. 

Start tobacco seeds indoors 4-8 weeks before outdoor planting time.  Sow thinly in a lightweight sterile soil mix.  BARELY cover the tobacco seed or don't cover it at all.  Press the soil firmly and water.  Keep evenly moist, but not soggy.  I recommend bottom heating the seed tray unless your soil has a constant 75 degrees or more temperature.  Remember tobacco is a tropical crop.  As tobacco seedlings appear, gradually expose them to direct light.  When the tobacco seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant into pots.  Harden off by gradual exposure to outdoor conditions.  After spring frosts transplant to garden 36" apart.
