SNPL's Leaf Development activities presently cover more than 10,000 farmers. The potential of direct employment through tobacco cultivation is more than 3.5 lakhs man days per season and indirect seasonal employment through tobacco buying, stemming, processing, godown management, transportation etc is more than 1.5 lakh man-days per season.

SNPL's support to Nepalese tobacco farmers to construct curing sheds have enabled them to protect their harvested crop from inclement weather and to undertake curing under suitable conditions in order to produce quality tobacco. The country produces approximately 2.20 million kgs of cigarette tobacco with SNPL procuring almost 100% of the produce.
