When western North Carolina farmer Martha Calderon needed help keeping her tomato harvest fresh, she called on NC State Extension (who then tapped the college’s Department of Biological and Agricultural Engineering). The result? A  project that goes above and beyond to protect Calderon’s crops and ensure profitability. Check out our video to see the team effort in action.
