The Celebration Begins (Virtually)
To commemorate our graduates’ achievement, and to spite the long, strange year, we released a Celebration of Success website to capture and uplift this poignant moment. Finishing undergrads and graduate students each have their own page on the site to stand proud, herald their accomplishments, and even deliver their own recorded message.
Tobacco Planting Persists
North Carolina tobacco growers are experiencing a 1-2 punch from COVID-19 - both in market demand and production. While tobacco isn’t a food crop, it does play an important role on many family farms and to NC’s farm economy - especially in rural areas. NC State Extension is working with growers to connect the dots in this unusual planting season.
Graduate Students Tackle Weeds and Webinars
NC State students are pressing on. Many are tackling tough weed science challenges and persisting despite the interruptions to daily student life.
