RALEIGH, N.C. — It was recently announced that the 2020 Tobacco Field Day was cancelled due to COVID-19.
We are pleased to announce that in place of our traditional in-person event we will be hosting a live webinar. On Monday, July 13th a series of video recordings that are focused on research and production updates will be posted here on the Tobacco Portal. The webinar will take place on Thursday, July 16th from 9:00 a.m. EST to 10:00 a.m. EST.
During the webinar, a welcome and NC State CALS update will be delivered by Dr. Rich Bonanno, Associate Dean and Director of the NC State Extension, and Dr. Dale Monks, Associate Director NC State Extension.
