Other chemical substances such as oils, solvents, fuels, and diluents may cause injury to tobacco through foliar contact. This contact may result in darkening of tender leaf areas, distortion of the leaf, or the formation of necrotic areas on the leaf. Holes may appear in the leaf if the tissue is killed. Severe exposure may result in the loss of turgor, and/or leaf drop; but under normal circumstances, later growth is not affected.
