A recent release from the joint tobacco breeding program at the Universities of Tennessee and Kentucky with level 6 resistance to both races of black shank. It also has resistance to black root rot, wildfire, tobacco mosaic virus, and the virus complex. KT 200LC is a semi-erect, late-maturing hybrid with high yield potential. Because of its late maturity, KT 200LC should be topped early and allowed to stand 5 weeks before harvest to optimize its curing potential

Disease Resistance: L = Low; M = Medium; H = High; VH = Very High; R = Resistant; S = Susceptible

* Virus Complex includes Tobacco Etch Virus(TEV), Tobacco Vein Mottling Virus(TVMV) and Potato Virus(PVY)
