Ethylene will cut up to 30 hours of normal yellowing, wilting and drying times of mature leaves!
Save money on electricity and fuel, and get higher-quality tobacco leaves utilizing our ethylene tobacco generators for tobacco curing. Ethylene will cut up to 30 hours of normal yellowing, wilting and drying times of mature leaves.
Tobacco properly cured with Ethy-Gen® II has fewer green butts, green fibers, and other off-colors. Ethy-Gen® II treated tobacco generally grades higher and brings a higher price. The use of Ethy-Gen® II can cut up to 32 hours of curing time, reducing energy costs and allowing earlier re-use of the curing system. When it is necessary to cure ripe, yellow, and mature-green tobacco (or separate varieties with different curing characteristics) together, the generator helps insure a more uniform color throughout the cure.
