|North Carolina has an extremely diverse agricultural industry. Many of the crops planted in the state are small-acreage crops, known as "minor" or "specialty" crops. The mission of the NCSU IR-4 Field Research Center is to identify the pest management needs for growers of these crops in North Carolina and to conduct crop response and residue trials to support registration of pest control products for these samll-acreage crops. Simply stated, our mission is to help "Fill the Toolbox" for these growers.|
