For almost any enterprise a North Carolina farmer decides to implement, NC State Extension offers production guidelines that are proven by land-grant university research and/or endorsed by Extension specialists. This page contains links to the key production guide or resource for almost any enterprise that a North Carolina farmer might consider.

Also note that extra caution should be exercised when contemplating an enterprise when no Cooperative Extension endorsed production methods are available, as it may be so new that reliable production guidelines have not been established, or it may not be adapted to North Carolina growing conditions. 

The N.C. Cooperative Extension website also hosts topic-based portals for most enterprises, with comprehensive references and timely updates. Several are listed below, or click “Topics” at the top of this page for a complete list.
