At the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences, we ask a lot of questions. But we don’t stop there: Our search for answers is relentless. We interrogate the basics of the life sciences. Our research casts a wide net: $130 million in annual expenditures, supporting 600 active projects that explore more than 70 different commodities.
We’re present across the state, with NC State Extension units in every county and 18 agricultural research stations that cover more than 19,000 acres. That network is an essential piece of our innovation pipeline. In labs on campus and across North Carolina, our faculty and students take on big questions and develop meaningful solutions. Our extension agents take those answers into the field and test them, giving our researchers essential insights in refining their discoveries.
We apply what we learn to the challenges of today and tomorrow. And our solutions have helped transform North Carolina’s agricultural footprint and economy.
