Nicotiana tabacum cells are cultured to high density for production of polysaccharide gum The reactor used is a stirred tank containing initially 100 litres medium The maximum specific growth rate of the culture is 0 18 d −1 and the yield of biomass from substrate is 0 5 g g −1 The concentration of growth-limiting substrate in the medium is 3% (w/v) Optimum mean daily temperature for growth is 20-30C and when grown commercially tobacco requires a frost-free period of 90-120 days from transplanting to last harvest of leaves A dry period is required for ripening and harvest of the leaves when tobacco is grown as a crop Excess rainfall results in thin lightweight leaves
