Collaboration From Field To Lab
Breeding Better Berries

Thought leadership alone will not feed, clothe, heal and fuel a growing population. We must deliver tangible impacts.
Through NC State Extension and international programs, our faculty relay agricultural challenges to N.C. PSI research teams and translate research-based knowledge into everyday solutions and practices.
What we Think and Do improves outcomes for producers, industry partners, neighbors and the environment we strive to protect.
