This is a 2004 report from a NC Specialty Crops Program Project. It is posted for historical reference purposes.
PROJECT LEADER(S): Billy Little
IMPACT: Several Wilson county growers have been utilizing specialty crops as an alternative for tobacco for the past couple of years. Growers interested in trying this mainly greenhouse production were able to see the actual methods utilized for these crops in our visits via a PowerPoint presentation developed on a grant-funded laptop. In addition, 12 interested growers traveled to Kinston Research Farm to explore greenhouse strawberries. One grower has already adopted the methods learned.
