North Carolina Crop Improvement Association (NCCIA)

 

The Executive Director is responsible for efficient and client responsive operation of the North Carolina Crop Improvement Association (NCCIA). NCCIA is responsible for seed certification activity of all major crops grown in North Carolina since 1929. Our goal is to ensure a realiable source of seed and plant propagation material that is true to type and without noxious weeds, diseases, and off-type plants within tolerance levels. The seed industry is a multi million-dollar industry in North Carolina. Seed produced in this state are not only sold in North Carolina but to neighboring states and far away states like California and overseas. The impact on the farmer has been measured and is reported to result in a significant economic advantage by researchers at major universities
