The Northeast Ag Expo Summer Field Day was held on July 27th in Gates County at Indian Neck Farms with over 275 people in attendance. The field day began with breakfast and a trade show of over 30 agribusiness vendors. Field tours showcased soybean, cotton, peanut, and sesame research trials implemented at the site aimed at evaluating the efficiency and profitability of various treatments and strategies, as well as a focus on irrigation management. This annual event is a collaborative effort of Extension staff from Camden, Currituck, Chowan, Gates, Pasquotank, and Perquimans counties which rotates among host farms in the region.
