County of Applicant:

The purpose of this Golden LEAF grant is to provide continued support for NCSU’s Specialty Crops Program. The project focuses on creating NC-specific production and marketing leaflets on all the crops and products the Program has studied to date; channels research and marketing efforts on crops and products with long-term economic viability; continues to hold field days and grower meetings statewide; and offers an intensive training course on specialty melon production and marketing. The program is designed to identify and develop new crops, products, and agricultural enterprises for North Carolina, and to provide that information to NC farmers.
