The Virginia Tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum) is a perennial herbaceous plant in the nightshade family (Solanaceae). It's one of the two species of tobacco, commercially cultivated in KPK province of Pakistan. I used the term Virginia Tobacco, because this is the name, commonly used by our farmers for this species of tobacco. It's grown for the production of tobacco leaf, which is mainly used in cigarette industries. In spite of being a curse, the tobacco crop is not only a source of income for our farmers, but has great economic value for the country. About 40 % of all government excise taxes and 10 % of total government revenue are earned through tobacco and its products.
