Irrigation in Southcentral North Carolina

Record #:
Agriculture is the predominant economic activity in south-central North Carolina. Though abundant arable land is available for increased production, expansion and refinement is often hindered by frequent and sometimes severe droughts, associated with high temperatures and sandy soil. Ross argues for increased rates and levels of irrigation that would result in a more consistent and higher quality product.
