Mr. Tilley is one of the largest Tobacco growers in the county, and uses V-C Fertilizers exclusively on all his crops. Mr. Tilley sets 6,000 plants to the acre, and uses 200 pounds of V-C Fertilizers to the thousand, making 1,200 pounds of Fertilizer to the acre. Mr. Tilley studies his Tobacco plants closely from the time they are set until the cured Tobacco is marketed. He has experimented with a number of different brands and grades, but finds that V-C goods give him better Tobacco than anything else he has ever used, and that Tobacco grown with these goods is of finer texture and cures up more evenly than any Tobacco raised with other brands. Mr. Tilley also makes a specialty of raising Tobacco seed for sale.
