is there an ideal soil to grow tobacco in? im sure there are different requirements for different strains, but is there a general target i should strive for? talking more of mineral and fertilizer content than soil type composition. also is there a best or worst type of manure to use? thanks.​

Welcome to the Forum

Creek bottom land is always best so long as they drain good and don't flood , they most usually contain the richest soil .Tobacco likes potash and nitrogen rich soil and a PH 6.4 to 6.6
But if you give us your location in your profile , there may be someone close to you that knows your soil better .

Tobacco will grow about anywhere you can grow a garden or other field crops
