It is significant because those more than 400 producers of Las Tunas, some 690 kilometers of Havana, had to carry out an extraordinary effort to reach their plantation goal and to repair the houses to cure the leaves, damaged by the hurricanes Ike and Paloma last September and November, reports the Cuban News Agency.
In spite of not having a solid tradition in this cultivation like the western and central provinces, Las Tunas incorporated in the 1990's to the national effort to increase the productions of tobacco.
During the last years the manual elaboration of cigars to be exported began in the factory of the northern municipality of Puerto Padre that annually produces more than two million units and works to increase that figure.
