| December 24, 2013

Flue-cured tobacco auctions in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh are expected to start on February 15, according to a story in the latest edition of the BBM Bommidala Group newsletter.

The chairman of the Tobacco Board, Koothati Gopal, was quoted as saying that the sales were due to start simultaneously on all auction floors.

Andhra growers are thought to have produced a little over 170 million kg this season, all of which will be sold under the recently-introduced e-auction system.
