The North Carolina State Climate Office works closely with NC State Extension and the larger N.C. Cooperative Extension System to provide science-based climate resources to our agricultural partners across the state. Examples of outputs of these collaborations include outreach on North Carolina’s climate and climate change impacts (check out these online tutorials and our deep-dive webinar series), online tools that integrate climate data for various agricultural applications and decisions, and original research.
