Agricultural enterprise budgets, business management plans, fresh produce safety and market info to help farmers be more successful and profitable.
CALS Research, NCSU's insight:

At the Plants for Human Health Institute, PHHI, of the College of Agriculture & Life Sciences, NCSU, scientists are solving grand challenges in agriculture, nutrition & human health. Groundbreaking, transdisciplinary discovery & outreach will pioneer a dramatic shift in the way Americans view & use food crops, not merely for nutrients & calories, but as a powerful resource for components that protect & enhance health.

 

Integrated research in biochemistry, breeding, epigenetics, metabolomics, pharmacogenomics, postharvest attributes and systems biology will lead to the development of mainstream fruits, vegetables and natural products containing bioactives with enhanced health benefits. The resuls will allow consumers to make proactive, responsible dietary choices that benefit their own, and their family’s, health.
