The world's population is growing and our farmland is shrinking.
North Carolina and the world needs professionals trained in the production and management of food, feed, fiber and fuel crops and that is just what the Field Crops Technology program does. How are we going to feed and clothe everyone? How are we going to provide enough grain for food, fuel and feed? The Field Crops Technology curriculum provides a basic understanding of how field crops grow, how yield is influenced by management decisions, how proper soil management enhances farm profits, and how farm profits are tied to marketing decisions.
Students at NC State University learn the most recent recommendations directly from the experts.
The NC State General Agriculture Program provides a curriculum that gives students an understanding of how they can reduce farm inputs and at the same time maximize crop yields while protecting the environment and natural resources around them. The strength of our program lies in our teachers. Commodity and production courses are taught by Crop Science Extension Specialists. NC State Crop Science faculty members are the same ones who conduct applied research and on-farm tests and provide production information across the state.
