On September 6, 2019, NC State celebrated the ground-breaking on a state-of-the-art Plant Sciences Building. Designed to be a world-leading center for plant science research and innovation, this building is the cornerstone of the Plant Sciences Initiative aimed at solving agricultural challenges, such as increasing crop yields, extending growing seasons, creating new varieties and improving sustainability.
Coastal is pleased to announce the two recipients of the JC Whitehurst, Jr. Agricultural Scholarship for the 2019-2020 academic year.
Governor Cooper has declared a state of emergency for all of North Carolina in preparation for potential impacts of Hurricane Dorian. The Governor’s Executive Order suspends motor vehicle regulations including the temporary suspension of weighing vehicles used to transport livestock, poultry or crops ready to be harvested and feed to livestock and poultry in the emergency area. The Order also waives the maximum number of hours of service for drivers.

Get real-time measurement of soil moisture, nutrients and temperature at the active root zone, so you can make critical decisions for the best possible yield. AquaSpy® probe system is a fully-integrated solution which includes all necessary components – probe, telemetry and software. Track crop behavior through a 48″ profile and see real-time data for every 4 inches of soil.
Stabilize RZ is a microbial soil amendment that improves soil health and biological activity, causing plants to better utilize water and nutrients. The result is stronger, healthier plants and higher yields. Stabilize RZ is an excellent addition to starter fertilizer programs for corn, cotton, soybeans, peanuts and grain sorghum as well as tobacco setter water. It may also be applied at layby or anytime nutrients are applied to the soil.
To enhance herbicide performance and improve application characteristics, Spectrum is the top choice adjuvant to ensure good coverage, penetration and retention, even in less than ideal conditions. Why is Spectrum so important for your herbicide application and how does it work?
Improve on-target deposition and coverage of your spray application and reduce off-target movement with Drift-X DRT. Drift-X DRT (Drift Reduction Technology) is a consistently high-performing deposition and drift management agent that delivers 20% more product to the target and provides uniform coverage on the targeted surface.
All nutrients, including micronutrients, need to be maintained at optimum levels throughout the crop life cycle to maximize yield. Even though only small amounts are needed, micronutrients are key in many physiological processes in the plant including enzyme production, cell wall structure, and metabolic pathways such as photosynthesis, flowering, seed development and root growth. Shortages of any of the micronutrients (boron, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum and zinc) can have a dramatic impact on yields.
