Winter Agriculture Meetings 

Please find the 2022 Camden Extension Winter Agriculture Meetings schedule enclosed. The meetings in red will include a catered meal, for these please call the Camden Extension Office at 331-7630 to RSVP for the meal count. 

I am truly excited about the slate of meetings this year, and to be back holding meetings face-to-face, in-person. In addition to the popular mainstay meetings, programs with new topics have been organized to target key needs. I hope to see you at these meetings. 

Soybean Variety Trial Results 

Enclosed you will find summarized tables of the results from the 2021 Northeast Ag Expo Soybean Variety Trials. These trials were located in Camden, Currituck, Gates, Pasquotank, and Perquimans counties. Trials were separated into varieties containing either Enlist or Xtend herbicide traits. Production information for each location is located on the back of the pages. Thank you to each of the local farmers and agribusinesses for their contributions to these trials. Without their support, we would not be able to provide this locally generated information to the region’s growers.

Yield and production information from previous soybean variety trials can be located here:
