NCDA&CS activates hotline to help farmers impacted by Hurricane Florence

RALEIGH – The N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services has activated its hotline to connect farmers with resources that can assist with agricultural emergencies. The toll-free number is 1-866-645-9403. The hotline operates 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.

“Although this storm may change course, we are monitoring the situation closely,” said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. “We advise everyone to take this situation seriously and take proper safety measures. We are prepared to work with our state and local partners to help our agricultural community as needed.”

Farmers can also find recovery resources on the department’s disaster Web pages, www.ncagr.gov/disaster.

Welcome to the NC Peach Growers Society!

The North Carolina Peach Growers’ Society supports improvements in all aspects of peach production through research at NC State University, and helps growers expand their local markets with support from Cooperative Extension and the Department of Agriculture.

The Society sponsors an Annual Meeting the fourth Tuesday of every January, which brings the latest pest and orchard management information from University Specialists, tips on marketing and more. Field days, special workshops and training events are also sponsored by the Society throughout the year. These efforts provide peach growers with the most effective tools to improve their crops and, most importantly, their profitability.

Membership in the North Carolina Peach Growers Society helps to support the industry in North Carolina. A strong, active membership informs state policy makers that the peach industry is an important and valuable commodity for North Carolina, and worthy of continued support through designated funds for University specialists and the Department of Agriculture.

As state policy makers face tough decisions in an era of tight budgets, it is critical to have a strong voice for peach growers. Without growth and support by membership, the peach industry will be vulnerable to declines in support at the state and university level. Invest in the strength of the peach industry in North Carolina by joining the NC Peach Growers’ Society today.
