Flue-Cured Virginia tobacco production in Karnataka FY 2006-2018

The production of Flue-Cured Virginia (FCV) tobacco across the southern state of Karnataka in India amounted to approximately 107 million kilograms in the financial year 2018. There was an increasing trend in the production of this cash crop in recent years. The other leading producer of flue-cured tobacco in the country was Andhra Pradesh.

Tobacco cultivation

The production of FCV tobacco in the country accounted for about ten percent of the area and nine percent of the total production. FCV is mostly used in cigarette manufacturing. Due to its status as a regulated crop, there were fluctuations in its production in the country over the years. Despite this, India was one of the leading producers of tobacco globally after China and Brazil.

Tobacco exports

   India has different varieties of tobacco grown in the country, of which, FCV tobacco is the leading exportable tobacco crop. The improving quality of FCV tobacco over the years had retained India’s position in world tobacco trade. Tobacco exports from the country amounted to over 60 billion Indian rupees in the financial year 2018 with Belgium as the leading destination.
