Mariya Kasheva, Hristo Bozukov, Margarita Docheva
Abstract: This research was conducted in the period of 2020 – 2022 in a certified organic field in the town of Gotse
Delchev and under conventional conditions in an experimental field in Kozarsko village. An assessment has been made of the basic quality parameters of the tobacco raw material obtained from organic and conventional oriental tobaccos of the Basmi variety group. The basic physical parameters of dry tobacco have been determined. The chemical parameters of tobacco have been studied – nicotine, soluble sugars, total nitrogen and ash. The basic elements of the mineral and polyphenol composition of the organic tobaccos of the Krumovgrad 58 and Nevrokop 1146 ecotype have been determined. A comparative assessment has been made of the changes in basic parameters used for quality assessment of oriental tobaccos of the Basmi variety group grown under organic and conventional conditions.
