Encallado

A type of tobacco growing where a plot of tobacco is shaded only on the sides (see photo). This provides protection from the wind and also provides a limited form of shade, shielding tobacco from the rays of the sun when the sun is lower in the sky. Tobacco grown encallado style is fairly rare, and provides a farmer with a middle ground between shade grown and sun grown.
