As Its Cash Crop Wilts, The East Seeks Industry

Record #:
Tobacco, the traditional money crop for Eastern North Carolina, is on the wane, as falling prices cause farmers to reduce acreage and seek other crops. While industrial jobs appear to be the best alternative as a replacement, not all eastern counties are equal in bringing in new industry. New Hanover and Brunswick Counties are doing the best because of good transportation (roads and ports) and a good labor pool--items which smaller, more rural counties lack.
