Abstract:This paper sketches the history of tobacco cultivation in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). The Portuguese occupation of the area from Sofala through Mt. Darwin saw the first introduction of tobacco to Rhodesia, but the first 'pioneer' of tobacco production in the country was E.H. South of Warwickshire Farm, Hunyani. He grew his first crop in 1903 and started curing in the first tobacco barn in the country in 1904. The first records of production were noted from 1910. The paper also pays attention to tobacco varieties and culture, and the curing and handling of the crop. Ref. [ASC Leiden abstract]
