Agricultural Review

On the Horizon

The Oxford Research Station will celebrate 100 years of agricultural research this year. The station joins three others that have reached this milestone – the Upper Coastal Plain Research Station in Rocky Mount, Piedmont Research Station in Salisbury and the Mountain Research Station in Waynesville.

North Carolina has a long history of agricultural research success from the 18-station system, which operates under a unique partnership between N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, N.C. State University and N.C. A&T State University.

During the past 100 years, the Oxford station has served as the premier tobacco research station, supporting a crop that through the years has laid a foundation for growth for the state.

A celebration event will be held later this year.
