• 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.

I am looking to purchase some lockwood burley seed, We grew it up until the 1980s in WV but our seed ran out, If anyone has any to sell or has a lead on where to find it, I would greatly appreciate it.

Your best bet, might be to look it up on the GRIN database, and also the FTT database here to figure out "who" might have the seed.

I did some reading on on it, looks like a local landrace. Might have luck calling tobacco farmers in the region.

What company produced lockwood burley seed ?

Is Lockwood the company name , if so then there was probably several varieties of lockwood tobacco seeds.

it was a variety that was used in eastern KY and western WV. West Virginia university did research on his production along with other burley types in the early 1900s. As for the seed, we used to even sell the seed to folks in the 1970s/80s but ours ran out and now I would like to start it again on our farm . It seems finding the seeds is going to be a challenge .
