Tobacco residue from the production of cigarettes is available from the Adana factory at the rate of 3-4 t/day which could be used as an alternative bulky organic manure. Farm yard manure (FYM) is an expensive material both to acquire and use where as tobacco waste (TW) is cheap and readily available.
