The small fruits research and extension program focuses on sustainability aspects and the use of new technologies to increase the resilience of fruit production in North Carolina and the US. Our program focuses on
(1) strawberry and grape production and nursery systems research
(2) industry outreach and extension
(3) Coming soon: consumer education
We proudly started to serve the muscadine, bunch grapes and strawberry industry in North Carolina in 2017.
Our mission is to provide long-lasting and growth building services and visions to community, grower and industry.
We provide services in the areas of research, consultation, information and engagement. We work in national and international collaborations with industry, researchers, extension agents and specialists.
