    cv. (a) Bright Yellow (aurea), (b) Burley 21 and (c) Consolation 402 and the normal cv. (d) Matsukawa and (e) Kirigasaku. After topping, the chlorophyll and carbohydrate contents of (a) and (b) fell more rapidly, but N contents of (a) and (b) were higher and decreased more slowly than those in (d) and (e). Maturity of (c) was similar to that of normal cv. In all cv. tested, the time taken for leavesleavesSubject Category: Anatomical and Morphological Structures

    to turn yellow or brown during curing at 30 deg C and 80% r.h. depended on cv. and not on chlorophyll content at harvest. Curing time was shortest for (a). F.en s.
