Is that true that total dryness kills all enzymes? Somewere I read this. I was wondering why someone says that he is curing turkish varities in camber under 50C, because they always is cured under the Sun, so here is no alive enzyme? I overdosed fertilizer., My TN90 is 120 day after transplanting (I transplanted in 4th may), leaves is totally green. I tryed to rinse out the fertilser with much of water, bet leaves dont stay whiter. What to do?

If totally dried in sun, no living enzymes will be alive.

tn90... if leaves still green, maybe they will be ok.
stop using chemical fertilizer! and no chicken droppings.

Good luck

No, it;s not true. Temps over 160 will kill the enzymes and stop the aging process. Dryness alone will not kill the enzymes, although very dry tobacco ages much slower.

About all you can do to encourage your plants to ripen is to stop watering them. Let the flower head grow and don't pick off any suckers until just before you harvest. Letting the plants reach bloom will also help them ripen up.

TN 90 takes a little longer than many other Burley strains, but you should be seeing yellow leaves by now. Usually it take about 80 days from transplant. Too much nitrogen late in the season will keep the plants green. I never fertilize after mid July. Not much you can do about that now but wait. Pick them before it freezes whether the leaves are still green or not. TN 90 cures pretty easy and the leaves will probably all color up nicely. Frost will ruin them.
