Historical Note

In November of 1907 North Carolina appointed its first County Agent for the purpose of educating farmers on productive farming techniques. As a result of the Smith-Lever Act of 1914, Land-Grant Universities were authorized to begin cooperative extension work with the USDA. The Smith-Lever Act made provisions for the use of County Extension agents to educate farmers, provide help in farming, and help with 4-H Clubs and Home Demonstration agents to provide help in running a farm household and provide health information. County and Home Demonstration agents work in cooperation with North Carolina State University and North Carolina A and T.
