Crop Commercialization Program
Growing ideas into opportunity
The NCBiotech Crop Commercialization Program (CCP) was created to evaluate and coordinate the introduction and market development of newer high-value crops as well as improvements for existing crops that would help our NC farmers. This program facilitates the interdisciplinary collaboration of industry and academic partners to advance high-value crops and ag tech companies, fueling a virtuous cycle that grows NC's agribusiness sector.
