In order to investigate the co-effects of compound microbial inoculum and organic-inorganic fertilizer on the resistance, growth, yield and quality of flue-cured tobacco, the activity of various defensive enzymes in tobacco roots and leaves at different growing stages as well as the changes of tobacco yield and quality were determined with field trials. The results indicated that proportionate application of compound microbial inoculum with organic and inorganic fertilizers significantly improved the agronomic character of tobacco, enhanced the activities of defensive enzymes, such as superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase (CAT), peroxidase (POD), and phenylalanine ammonia lyase (PAL) in tobacco roots and leaves, and reduced the morbidity and disease index relative to tobacco black shank disease, tobacco mosaic virus disease and tobacco brown spot disease. Correlation analysis showed that the activities of defensive enzymes (PAL, SOD, and POD) in tobacco roots positively correlated to those in tobacco leaves. Proportionate application increased the contents of total sugar and reducing sugar in tobacco leaves, especially increased potassium content significantly, which made the chemical composition in tobacco leaves more harmonious. The experiments indicated that the application of compound microbial inoculum together with 75% organic and inorganic fertilizers was beneficial to the growth, development of flue-cured tobacco and increasing its yield, quality and resistance to stress.

For effectively controlling weeds in tobacco fields, the seed pools of weeds in main tobacco growing areas in Sichuan was studied in terms of composition and population with germination method in 2011-2014. The results showed that there included 24 weed species, belonged to 15 families, spread mainly in 0-15 cm soil layer. The dominant species were of Gramineae, followed by those of Compositae and then of Chenopodiaceae. The species of dicotyledonous weeds exceeded the species of monocotyledonous weeds in number, but the density of seed was obviously lower. The highest density (19119 seeds/m2) seed pool was found in the sample from Guangyuan, while the lowest (6177 seeds/m2) was found in the sample from Panzhihua. ©, 2015, Editorial Office of Tobacco Science and Technology.

In order to shorten the period of seedling culturing and improve the quality of tobacco seedlings, a contrast experiment was conducted by applying seedling fertilizers at different rates into seedling culturing substrates. The results showed that comparing with the control (CK), the period of seedling culturing reduced by 8 days when seedling fertilizers were applied into the substrates at a rate of 520 g/m3. All of seedling growing stages were shortened, particularly the duration from seedling germination to little cross stage decreased by 3.38 days. The number and weight of roots, the agriculture traits, root vitality and the chlorophyll content and nitrate reductase activity of leaves reached to their highest. Therefore, applying appropriate amount (520 g/m3) seedling fertilizers into substrates can promote the growth and development of tobacco seedlings, obviously shorten seedling growing period, and the cultured seedlings possess vigorous and well developed root systems. ©, 2015, Editorial Office of Tobacco Science and Technology.
