Website | Twitter

The second AgBioFEWS cohort discusses lessons learned from visiting Eastern NC.

Abstract

The second AgBioFEWS cohort visited Eastern NC this summer talking with farmers, stakeholders, faculty, and extension agents. The goal of the trip was to gain a deeper understanding of agriculture in Eastern NC. The cohort will present on the insights they gained focused on three major themes: land and power, agbiotech, and decision making. These insights will be used to inform the development of the cohort’s proposals.
