Tidewater Research Station (Plymouth)

The Tidewater Research Station was established in 1943 in Washington County to serve a large area of North Carolina lying between the Coastal Plain region and coastal North Carolina. It replaced the Blackland Test Farm near Wenona, established in 1912. This region of North Carolina has expanded rapidly in agricultural enterprises during the past 35 years. Extensive land clearing and drainage occurred in this region from the early 1960s to the 1980s, and the need for research grew with increased crop acreage. The station concentrates primarily on research involving grain and swine production — the major focus of agriculture in the area. The station is on 1,558 acres — 840 acres of woodland, 428 acres of cropland, 195 acres of pastures, and 95 acres in ponds, buildings, roads, and related areas. Facility information.
