Dr. Matthew Vann, Asst. Prof., Dept. of Crop and Soil Sciences/NCSU,
will present via Zoom (info below abstract) a seminar titled:
“From Seed to Smoke – My Journey to Sustain North Carolina’s Oldest Cash Crop”
2:00 pm, Thursday, August 27, 2020.
North Carolina has a longstanding reputation for producing the highest quality tobacco in the world; however, this notoriety is not earned absent of grand challenges. Since 2015, the Tobacco Research and Extension Program in the Department of Crop and Soil Sciences, led by Dr. Matthew Vann, has invested significant effort into sustaining this industry by conducting applied research that addresses the many needs of the modern tobacco farmer, educates the next generation of tobacco farmers and scientists, and readily shares new information with the current body of commercial farmers and Extension Agents. This seminar will outline Dr. Vann’s efforts to sustain North Carolina’s oldest and most economically important crop.
