For Extension Agents

Each county in North Carolina is equipped with Extension Agents who are charged with applying information from the research conducted by the university to problems the consumers or growers in their area may face. The agents, often aided by dedicated Master Gardeners, may offer general guidance, advice, and outreach to those in need concerning various areas of Horticulture. At the University level, Extension Specialists work with Agents, Master Gardeners, 4-H, and commodity groups to provide support. There is hardly a greater asset to consumers, industries, or growers than Extension, and with support by Extension Faculty and Staff, the Extension Agents across the state will continue to help countless individuals and companies through their efforts.
