One field of research important to the region is horticulture. The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and North Carolina State University run  horticultural research stations around the state. The station in Castle Hayne is the primary local research site. Its varied, ongoing programs concentrate on crops of local economic importance, such as blueberries, strawberries, grapes, ornamentals and cucurbits. Variety trials, breeding, insect and disease control, and herbicide tests are among the studies performed. The station works in limited association with the New Hanover County Extension Service Arboretum, especially regarding soil studies, but primarily serves local horticulturists by making useful publications available to them through the N.C. Cooperative Extension Service.
