The N.C. Cooperative Extension Service houses a multidisciplinary group of professionals at the N.C. Research Campus as part of the Plants for Human Health Institute. Providing expertise in farm business management, communications and marketing, and fresh produce safety, these Cooperative Extension staff serve as an outreach component to complement the research conducted at PHHI.
As with all N.C. Cooperative Extension employees, the professionals at PHHI deliver practical applications of science-based research to the people of North Carolina. By securing grants and partnerships, the Cooperative Extension group builds additional educational resources and relationships that enhance the profitability of the N.C. agriculture industry and promote the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables across the state.
