About the Division and North Carolina agricultural research

Agriculture research in North Carolina dates back to 1877, when state legislation established the North Carolina Department of Agriculture along with “Experiment Stations” as a division of the department. Since that time, the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ (NCDA&CS) Research Stations Division, in partnership with the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at North Carolina State University and School of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences at NC A&T State University, has established 18 statewide locations.

Each facility has unique climate and soil conditions, giving researchers a living laboratory in which to investigate a variety of regional crops, forestry concerns, livestock, poultry, and aquaculture. The Division supports these studies by providing land, water, equipment, buildings, and staff who work around the clock to help build a stronger foundation for the future of agriculture.

We invite you to explore our pages and learn how agricultural research in North Carolina continues to improve your life, no matter where you live.
