A self-assessed check-off supporting agricultural research, extension and teaching programs in North Carolina State University’s College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS) is set for a vote on Nov. 17, 2022.

Who is eligible to vote? If you or your family buy feed or fertilizer you can vote.

Users of feed and fertilizer in North Carolina — residential and commercial, agricultural and urban or suburban — will vote on whether to continue the 15 cents per ton self-assessment on fertilizer and animal feed produced in our state. Since 1951, the Nickels For Know-How check-off has been voted on every six years and has passed in the 13 previous referenda with an average 90% favorable vote.

Nickels for Know-How is a 65-year-old voluntary assessment on feed and fertilizer produced and purchased in North Carolina.

North Carolina’s Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services collects the money from the manufacturers of feed and fertilizer. Manufacturers build the cost – three nickels per ton – into the price of their products.

The money is transferred to the North Carolina Agricultural Foundation. The funds are then used to support research, teaching and extension projects at NC State University.

Polling places will be established in each county. Every County Center will have at least one polling place onsite. Halifax County’s polling place will be at the N.C. Cooperative Extension, Halifax County Center 357 Ferrell Lane Halifax, NC 27839 starting at 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Stop by and cast your vote.
