Contract Research

IMPACT Agronomics, Inc. operates its 47 acre research facility located near Pantego, North Carolina. The farm is composed of three different soil types providing a good range from mineral soils of about 2% organic matter to organic soils with 20+% organic matter. Thirty acres are equipped with subsurface drip irrigation.

We work primarily on the field crops of cotton, corn, soybeans, and wheat. We also have the capability to harvest snap beans mechanically. Other vegetables grow well on this farm and we have conducted research on squash, cucumbers, tomatoes and Irish potatoes.

We can conduct product efficacy trials for herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, nematicides, seed treatments, soil and foliar applied nutrients, fertilizers, and many other types of products.

Variety Trials

We can conduct variety trials as small plots on our farm or as larger strip trials in cooperation with growers. We can conduct regulated and stewarded trials as well.
