Historical Note

The North Carolina Agricultural Experiment Station was created in 1877, and transferred from the state to North Carolina State University in 1889. The Station was jointly run by the two groups and became a source of contention between the State Department of Agriculture and the University through the early part of the twentieth century. In 1979 the title "Agricultural Experiment Station" was changed to "Agricultural Research Service."
