Elbert Roberts has been growing approximately 72 acres of tobacco since 1980. He is transitioning to organic vegetable production with the support of his local Extension agent and with support from this grant.

Expected income from new vegetable production is $15,000.

Because of this grant "I may be able to stop raising tobacco altogether."
