A new flue-cured tobacco variety Minyan9 was developed by recrossing combination (Cuibi 1×RG12) × (Yuyan 85×Yanyan 97) followed by pedigree selection from 1999 to 2012. Results of regional field trials in Fujian province and southeast China showed that the new variety had good adaptability, strong growth, and was easy to be flue-cured. It was resistant to tobacco black shank and tobacco bacterial wilt, slightly susceptible to tobacco climate spot. The cured leaf was rich in oil and had shining bright and well-distributed orange color. It has the favorable and well-proportioned chemical composition and good smoking-quality to meet the requirements of manufacturing cigarettes. The new variety had higher leaf yield, higher average price, higher ratio of high and middle class leaf and higher production value than check variety K326. In conclusion, Minyan9 was a new variety with good characters. Source
