Cultivating a Revolution:
Science, Technology and Change in North Carolina Agriculture, 1950-1979

The Special Collections Research Center at North Carolina State University Libraries has just completed a two year grant funded project digitized over 40,000 resources related to agriculture research done in North Carolina during the 1950s-1970s, with a particular focus on tobacco research and mechanization of harvesting of crops such as cucumbers and sweet potatoes. Please visit the project's website at http://go.ncsu.edu/car to learn more about the project and access the digitized materials.
