Ten teams comprising members from various organisations in the industry are visiting tobacco farmers and fields to collect data that will help with production projections for 2023.

In the exercise, one team has been deployed to the southern region; seven are in the central region; and two have been assigned to the north.

After the first round, two more exercises are expected to be conducted.
