Review of the 1980 81 Marketing Season

Higher averages were recorded for all types of
fire-cured and dark air-cured tobacco markets
during the 1980 81 auction season. Volume
decreased from the year before. The percentage of
sales placed under loan dropped substantially -
while country sales for types 22-23 and 35 showed
an increase.

Type 21

A record average of $126.69 per hundred was set
for 3.6 million gross pounds during the 1980 81
season. This was up $9.54 from the previous high
set for the 1976 crop. However, a decrease in
acreage and lower yields caused the value to drop
almost 22 percent from last season. Grade
averages increased by mainly $17 to $32 per
hundred over levels of last year. Averages ranged
from $227 for grade CLL 46 to $39 for N2. A sig-
nificant drop was recorded in quality. Loan
receipts amounted to 7.1 percent of sales compared
with 16.0 percent last season.

Types 22-23

Producer's sales of 32.2 million pounds were 7.0
million below 1979 and 19 million below 1978.
Auction sales comprised 44 percent of the 1980
crop and averaged $121.87 per hundred. While this
was $19.07 above 1979 the price was $16.22 below
the record set in 1976. Country sales set a new
record averaging $158.30 per hundred. The quality
of auction sales declined from last year as more
green and greenish grades appeared on the floors.


However, demand was good and only one grade N2 -
recorded a drop in the bid price. Indeed, most
grades registered gains of $30 $40 per hundred.
Loan receipts declined from 40 percent in 1979 to
15 percent this season.

Type 35

A record high general average was established as
growers presented a better quality crop while grade
averages improved over the previous year. Gross
sales totaled 8.6 million pounds averaging $120.95
per hundred up $11.79 from last season. Country
sales totaled 3.9 million pounds averaging $144.62.
Loan receipts amounted to 12.9 percent of sales
compared with 16.5 percent last season

Type 36

Higher grade prices and better quality resulted in
a record high general average exceeding the 1976
crop. Volume was only 600,000 pounds smaller.
Gross sales totaled 4.4 million pounds averaging
$126.49 an increase of $21.12 per hundred from
the previous year. Averages increased for about 90
percent of the grades. The few losses were
confined to lugs and nondescript. Loan receipts
were 6.5 percent of sales.

Type 37

Volume was the lightest ever for this type 385,480
pounds. The average of $127.40 is the highest on
record and was a result of better quality and
improved grade averages. Virtually no tobacco was
placed under loan.
