In the above table the brokes include poor quality tobacco (better than fillers) such as variegated, mixed, and off colors, also broken leaves and other damaged tobacco.

The tops include short darks, 16" or less, and poor quality long darks. Leaves in the class called darks probably are not of wrapper quality but are of heavy body and dark color. No light or medium wrappers were found in sufficient amount to make separate weighings, therefore they are included in the seconds or the darks.

The above results indicate that the use of inorganic compounds (such as ammonium sulfate and nitrates) as the only sources of applied ammonia tends to produce increased percentages of the lower grades of tobacco, included largely in the brokes and the tops. This is accompanied by a decrease in the percentage of the more desirable grades especially the seconds.

During sorting, samples were taken from the darks and the seconds which were pooled March 14, 1925, on the basis of color and general quality by Mr. Walter Edwards, official grader for the Connecticut Valley Tobacco Association. Applying 1923 prices, average prices per pound and per acre were computed. The price per pound of the different grades of tobacco grown on the different plots is given in Table V.

Considering the percentage of the different grades as decimal parts of a pound and applying the pool prices, an average price per pound was figured for each plot. After deducting 11 cents per pound for sorting, sweating, storage and overhead (the Association charge for the 1923 crop) the net return per pound is presented in Table VI.
