1. An exhibitor may enter in any one or all different classes. However, one exhibitor is limited to ONE entry per class (Potted Plant, Green stick and Stripped Tobacco).
2. Each stick of green tobacco consists of 4 stalks per stick. The Superintendent and staff will NOT select a stalk to remove if 5 are included on the stick. It will be the duty of the agent/leader/exhibitor to select the stalk to remove.
3. All entries in the green stick classes should be wilted for a better presentation, but must still be in GREEN STAGE. Green tobacco will be judged on uniformity, general appearance and quality. The Superintendent has the right to disqualify any stick entered into the green stick category that has cured beyond the green stage.
