• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

This is the current status of the FTT Seed Bank data.

There are 565 individual listings, which condense down to 421 unique varieties held. These numbers do not include additional varieties that may have been grown and submitted to FTT since late autumn of 2014.

Because of the large number of items in the list, I have created downloadable, printable lists in .pdf format. Each list is sorted differently. Otherwise they list the same varieties. Each .pdf file is about 500k. Printed in landscape, each list is 12 pages.

Further details will follow.

Fantastic job! Bob, this has clarified a few things for me. The Penn. Red is actually Penn. Red rose? I have been wondering for a few months now if they were related, after scanning the GRIN data base. The dates, varieties, class and PI Number references are excellent!

This will surely be a list that will last for many many years!

Greate work there Bob!
question one the file: don't the "Nicitiana projects" seed include? If so we/you also have "Mosaic tolerate Little wood" (PI:551330) don't find it one your file.. If you don't have it I can send you some seed next year, the seed I have from this year it's not grow well.. Don't know why...

Bob, I`m busy negotiating with one of our extension officers to obtain some heirloom air-cured ( Dark pipe tobacco) seeds, Black shank resistant. Will let you know if I can get some.
Sorry to be a pain in the butt, but I don't see the OD1 I've sent to Don last year. It was a heirloom flu cured tobacco.

The boldface and highlighting are remnants of my markings from my working copy of the 2014 GRIN group request list, which was appended to the Excel spreadsheet. That is to say, just ignore it. Sorry. There are probably still some odd fonts in there too.

If you want to print the list(s), be sure to set it to print landscape.

Request for Info on Your Donated Seed

If you have sent a seed donation to FTT since the start of November, 2014, or if you intend to send a seed donation before the end of January 2015, I would appreciate your sending me a PM with the details, so I can incorporate it into the list of available seed.

If you have the following information:
  • Variety Name [e.g. Adiyaban]
  • GRIN Accession Code [e.g. TI # or TC # or TR #]
  • GRIN PI #
  • GRIN Use Class [e.g. Oriental]
  • Country of Origin [e.g. Turkey]
  • Accession Date [e.g. 1984]
  • Date you grew the donated seed [e.g. 2014]
for each donated variety, it will save me a great deal of time trying to track it down. If you are missing some of the info, just leave that blank.

I'm hoping to put out a final list by the end of January.

Thanks,
Bob
