Scope and Content Note

The annual reports of the North Carolina Agricultural Research Service include annual and biennial reports from the Agricultural Research Service (many under its former designation of the North Carolina Agricultural Experiment Station), and reports documenting "Accomplishments in Tobacco Research in North Carolina." Materials range in date from 1879 to 1994.

Historical Note

The North Carolina Agricultural Experiment Station was created by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture in 1877, and was the second station in the United States (after the one in Connecticut). The early activities of the station consisted of running tests on chemical fertilizers and other agricultural products, and performing experiments concerning crop nutrition and growth. The station was transferred from state control to North Carolina State University in 1889. Thereafter, the station was jointly run by the two groups and became a source of contention between the Department of Agriculture and the University through the early part of the twentieth century. In 1979, the Agricultural Experiment Station was renamed the Agricultural Research Service.
