Tobacco Growing In Indonesia


JEMBER, INDONESIA – JUNE 16: A worker walks home past tobacoo plants in the Jember tobacco fields on June 16, 2007 in Jember, Indoensia. Despite Indonesia’s troubled and struggling economy, the country continues to produce quality tobacco for cigar production throughout the world, which it has done so since late 1700. In Indoensia, a majority of tobacco is harvested in Jember, East Java. PT Ledokombo, the largest exporter of tobacco for cigars in Jember, is responsible for 60% of the export in the region and their tobacco is exported to countries including Cuba, France, Algeria and Spain.
