Vote, November 17, 2022

Thursday, November 17th is the day to vote for Nickles for Know-How. All users of feed and fertilizers can vote. Bertie County ballot boxes will be located at the following locations:

Bertie County Cooperative Extension 104 Lancaster Ave Windsor, NC 27983

Powell & Stokes217 US-13Windsor, NC 27983

Nutrien Ag 710 NC Hwy 42Colerain, NC 27924

This vote is to allow users and producers of feed and fertilizer to decide if they wish to continue the self-assessment program. This program has been in place since 1948, and the law requires that a new referendum be held every six years.

A 2/3 favorable vote will mean that growers are willing to continue to assess themselves to support agriculture research and education. The assessment is fifteen cents per hundred pounds on feed and fertilizer produced in North Carolina.

The funds, about $1.4 million annually, are collected by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services and then allocated by the North Carolina Agriculture Foundation, Inc’s 148 volunteer Board of Directors to support agricultural research and extension projects at North Carolina State University benefitting agriculture in North Carolina.
