North Carolina Agronomist Sees Big Future for Hemp on the East Coast
David Suchoff, alternative crops extension specialist and assistant professor at North Carolina State University, has been working on growing trials for fiber to rebuild the textile supply chain in the state. He spoke to Let’s Talk Hemp from Raleigh, North Carolina.
How did your career lead you to hemp?
I have a master’s and a Ph.D. from NC State in horticulture, though the crop I worked with was tomatoes. Prior to this job, I had a position in the university’s Department of Crop and Soil Sciences working with organic commodities such as tobacco, sweet potato and various grains. Before that, I served in the Peace Corps in Paraguay for two years as a sustainable farming systems extension agent and did a third year doing similar work in Costa Rica. So I have a mixed bag of experiences all related to agriculture.
My position at NC State is a new one that was created in 2019 because there was a lot of interest from farmers in alternative row crops, hemp being one of them.
