What we Think and Do doesn't Stop at The Lab
We put our research into action at field labs and Extension offices across the state. In fact, our research in just five of North Carolina's top crops – tobacco, sweet potatoes, peanuts, blueberries and soybeans – adds more than $1.6 billion to rural NC economies.
Extending Knowledge to All North Carolinians
NC State Extension improves the lives, economies and communities of all North Carolinians through programs and partnerships focused on agriculture, food and nutrition, and 4-H youth development. In fact, we touch more than 1.9 million residents through more than 13,000 programs a year.
