It is human nature to question. Our ability to pose questions and develop answers allows us to alter our environment for the better. That is what the work of North Carolina Agricultural Research Service scientists is designed to do. Using conventional methods as well as the latest biotechnological techniques, we're improving North Carolina agriculture. We're developing new types of farming, and we're studying how to make conventional farming more efficient.

We're working, particularly within the life sciences, to learn more about the world around us. We're developing knowledge that will protect our environment, our water and air, and the quality and safety of our food. We're asking questions and searching for answers — answers that will create economic opportunities in agriculture and the life sciences.
