The statistical information included in this book represents a snapshot of North Carolina agriculture and the 
industry's overall impact and significance on each county in the state, illustrates the diversification of North 
Carolina's $62.6 billion agriculture industry, highlights farming and agribusiness trends, and encompasses avast 
amount of statistical data that allows a broad overview of the industry as well as individual commodities. 

While the 2003 Agricultural Statistics book captures a period in time, one of its primary goals is to help agricultural 
leaders look forward and plan for the future. The N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is 
working to ensure the continued success of the state's number one industry for future generations. Our continued 
partnerships with numerous agricultural groups, universities and agribusinesses, will provide the opportunity for 
tomorrow's agricultural leaders. 



The future of this industry rests in the hands of the young people who choose to 
till the soil and make the production of food and fiber their lives' work. The 4-H 
organization has been an instrumental and guiding force for more than 1 00 years 
in educating youngsters, reinforcing a strong sense of values and work ethic, and 
helping produce future leaders through their many programs. With its beginnings 
in agriculture and through the support of county cooperative extension offices, 
4-H has been a crucial link in building and maintaining interest in agricultural 
activities. 

The photos on the cover and inside this book were taken by 4-H members across 
the state during their 2002-2003 photography contest. We are happy to salute and 
celebrate their achievements and successes and are proud of the role 4-H plays in 
preparing the next generation of leaders. 

Finally, I would like to recognize our Agricultural Statistics Division, and especially 
their dedicated enumerator staff, for all the hard work put into compiling this important information. Countless 
hours went in to this project from collecting the information and computing the numbers to assembling and 
printing the book. Every effort was made to ensure the accuracy of our finished product in order to reflect the 
complete picture of agriculture in North Carolina. 

This is a tremendous undertaking and the effort of everyone involved is certainly appreciated. 
Sincerely, 

iJ. ^A^^JlJi-

About the Cover 



The 4-H program offers an educationally rich and fun 
environment where 4-H members and their parents learn by doing. 
Through its many projects, 4-H offers limitless opportunities for 
engaging the imagination and for hands-on activities. In 4-H, there 
is something for every child whether he or she lives in rural, suburban 
or urban North Carolina. 

Many of the photos used in this publication were selected from 
entries in the 2002 and 2003 4-H Photography Contest. This state- 
wide competition is sponsored by the North Carolina Farm Writers 
and Broadcasters Association and coordinated by the Department of 
Communication Services in the College of Agriculture and Life 
Sciences at NC State University. The purpose of this exhibition is to 
provide a showcase of 4-H members' photographic accomplish- 
ments.

Statistical Reports Program 



[V ORTH CAROLINA AGRICULTURAL STATISTICS 

^ compiles current and historic statistics con- 
cerning agriculture in the State. Where possible, information 
most often requested by farmers, the general public, and 
workers in government agencies are included. 

Reporting of crop and livestock statistics is a 
service rendered to farmers and others in the State 
by the National Agricultural Statistics Service of the 
U.S. Department of Agriculture in cooperation with 
the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Con- 
sumer Services. 

The collection and dissemination of agricultural 
statistics had its start in 1863. This is one of the oldest 
activities of the United States Department of 
Agriculture. It was recognized that there were many advan- 
tages of a joint relationship between the State and Federal 
Governments in the development of agricultural sta- 
tistics. Thus, in 1919 the N.C. Department of Agriculture 



entered into a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Depart- 
ment of Agriculture to provide detailed agricultural 
statistics. The agreement resulted in the creation of the Ag- 
ricultural Statistics Division of the North Carolina Depart- 
ment of Agriculture and Consumer Services. 

The North Carolina Agricultural Statistics Division 
publishes official statistics on crops, livestock, prices, and 
various other agricultural items. The most important reports 
and the approximate dates of release are shown 
in the table below. The reports marked with an (*) are is- 
sued separately. All others are included in the semi- 
monthly release entitled "Farm Report". The reports are 
free for respondents providing information used to com- 
pile the reports. Others are charged a nominal fee for 
the reports, which are available by writing to: State 
Statistician, P.O. Box 27767, Raleigh, NC 27611 or E-mail 
at: ncagstat@ncmail.net.

North Carolina 2002 Annual Weather and Climate Summary 



lorth Carolina farmers began 2002 with double digit 
deficiencies in cumulative rainfall due to a dry weather 
pattern which had been in place since the beginning of fall 
2001. January appeared to bring the antidote with above 
normal precipitation, but February settled back into the 
same dry pattern. Low stream flows and reduced ground 
water were major concerns for many areas. Adequate pre- 
cipitation fell in March to restore soil moisture levels to 
90% adequate or surplus by the end of the month. Soil 
moisture had slipped to 45% short or very short by the end 
of April, making farmers nervous about germination of 
recently planted or soon to be planted fields. Summer seemed 
to be settling in early with above normal temperatures and 
isolated thunderstorms cropping up in scattered locations. 
Consecutive days of low temperatures during the last full 
week of May ended the illusion of an early summer and 
resulted in freeze damage in the Northern Mountain region 
and some low-lying areas. The steady downturn in soil 
moisture percentages had been eased throughout most of 
May by various frontal systems that brought light to mod- 
erate precipitation. 

Stress to newly planted crops resumed again the 
week of Memorial day as soil moisture ratings fell to 80% 
short or very short by June 23rd. Above normal 
temperatures during this period evaporated the minimal 
precipitation which did fall, causing the State to be in one 
of the worst periods of dry weather on record. Temporary 
relief began in July as various rain events improved soil 
moisture ratings to 43% short or very short by the end of 
the month. Phenological development of many crops was 
accelerated, but moisture stress was beyond repair for much 
of the corn crop, and the entire State was classified as 
having exceptional drought conditions. The hot humid weather 
added insult to injury by fostering an ideal environment for 
a wide variety of disease and pests. Arid patterns returned 
in August and soil moisture ratings fell to 84% short or 
very short by the end of the month. With the accelerated 
development of drought and pest stressed plants, some 
burley tobacco growers opted to harvest their crop early. 
Pasture conditions deteriorated forcing early supplementa- 
tion of hay to livestock herds. This early demand caused 
concerns about winter availability of hay from a crop which 
was already in short supply due to growing conditions. 
Some livestock operations began culling herds. Some cot- 
ton plants "cut out" when bolls should have been opening 
causing further reductions in expected production. 



After months of persistent dry weather, most of central 
and eastern North Carolina received a week of ground-soak- 
ing, lake-filling, stream-rising, pasture-greening and gener- 
ally beneficial rainfall in early September. The combination 
of a northeasterly wind with an upper low to the west fed 
moisture over a stalled frontal boundary to produce heavy 
precipitation and an event considered atypical in the 
Southeast during the summer. Flash flooding and standing 
water in fields were the negative effects of the system, but 
overall it was a shot in the arm for the rain starved State. 
Reflective of the moisture, statewide soil moisture got a 
huge boost and improved by 37 percentage points in one 
week. The drought classification in the eastern half of the 
State was lessened. The rains were considered to be too late 
to improve tobacco and corn conditions but brought hope 
that cotton, soybean, and sweetpotato yields may improve. 
Arid conditions seemed to be returning, but were offset by 
the remnants of Tropical Depression Hanna which brought 
widespread and significant rainfall. More rain came the last 
week of September. The first full week of Autumn 
brought statewide precipitation as a result of the tropical 
system Isadore. Soil moisture improved to its best rating 
since mid April. While the rainfall was beneficial and wel- 
comed by farmers hoping to improve yields, those harvest- 
ing corn and tobacco had their progress deterred as they 
waited for fields to dry. There was good access to fields in 
early October. 

Drought conditions soon gave way to six straight 
weeks of excessive rainfall that limited days suitable 
to fieldwork to less than four days per week. This delayed 
harvest, diminished yields and crop quality, and delayed small 
grain plantings behind the un-harvested crops. The rains 
did relieve short term drought conditions as classifications 
were scaled back and water restrictions lifted in most loca- 
tions by the end of October. Moisture content remained 
high causing some peanut and soybean pod rot and prema- 
ture pod shattering in soybeans. Thick tall stands of hay 
remained inaccessible for harvest while some small 
livestock herds were being liquidated due to insufficient 
winter feed supplies. Farmers were able to access fields in 
early December and harvest progressed well until a winter 
storm followed by two weeks of wet weather brought 
harvest to a halt. Many acres intended for small grain were 
not planted. Overall, 2002 was a crop year that most North 
Carolina farmers will be glad to forget.

mulches for which no plant food content is claimed. 
Mixed Dry Products and Mixed Fluid Products include 
products resulting from the combination, mixture, or 
simultaneous application of two or more fertilizer 
materials for use in, or claimed to have value in 
promoting plant growth. Other Dry Products and 
Other Fluid Products include micro nutrient 
supplements and organic materials. Bagged Products 
include any fertilizer product that is sold in package 
form. Total dry products account for 66% of the total 
fertilizer. Bagged products account for 16%, and total

2002 North Carolina Crop Summary 



Tobacco Yields and Production Lower 

North Carolina flue-cured tobacco production for 2002 was 
down sharply from the previous year primarily due to the effects of 
the extended drought. The crop was also negatively impacted by 
higher than normal levels of disease, and late season rains caused 
some areas to have a late maturing crop. Production decreased 10% 
from the previous year and the average yield of 2,089 for 2002 was 
338 pounds less than the yield for 2001. Harvested area, at 162,000 
acres, was 7,000 acres more than 2001. The value of the flue-cured 
crop totaled $615 million, down 12% from 2001. 

North Carolina burley tobacco production, also impacted by the 
drought and disease in 2002, decreased 1 2% from 200 1 , totaling 9.5 
million pounds. Yield, at 1,500 pounds per acre, was 100 pounds 
below a year ago. Harvested area was estimated at 6,300 acres, 6% 
below last year. The value of the burley crop, at $18 million, was 
12% below 2001. 

Cotton Crop Down Dramatically 

Cotton production for the State was down sharply in 2002 due to
