A new documentary that explores the production of dark-fired tobacco by the farmers of Calloway County debuts Monday on KET. Will Snell, a tobacco expert at the University of Kentucky says that unlike burley, dark-fired tobacco for smokeless products has been booming. The market for dark-fired tobacco has been growing about 4-percent to 6-percent a year for the past 25 years. The film is called "Farming in the Black Patch."
