Welcome to the Northeast Ag Expo website! Here you will find information about events and research plots from the Northeast Ag Expo Team, a 6-county NC Cooperative Extension group in northeastern North Carolina. This 6-county team includes Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Gates, Pasquotank, and Perquimans Counties, as seen in the map below.
The Northeast Ag Expo Team typically hosts 2 field days each year, the Small Grain Field Day in late February/early March, and our hallmark annual event, the Northeast Ag Expo Field Day held each summer on the last Thursday in July. The field day location rotates between the 6 counties, and the commodity/commodities highlighted each year are those important to the host county.
Both field days are conducted annually through the joint efforts of producers, agribusinesses, North Carolina State University, commodity groups, and the 6-county North Carolina Cooperative Extension Centers. Since the counties involved are located in the Tidewater Region of North Carolina, the natural resources and commodities produced vary tremendously. Attendees get to view various research plots as well as benefit from presentations by Extension personnel and company representatives.
