Year Funded

Amount

$94,371.00

This project will introduce more tobacco farmers to herb production. The grantee will research and develop marketing benefits as part of their overall goal of determining if N.C. farmers can produce the quality and quantity of medicinal herbs required by the industry at a price that is competitive in a global market. The grant is made in response to hurricane damage to farms and the end of price supports for tobacco.
