The testing of varieties of Cultivated Plants;

The study of Insects injurious to Vegetation.

2. The Experiment Farm and Piant House of the Station was established during 1886 adjacent to the Fair Grounds of the State Agricultural So. ciety, one and a half miles west of Ritleigh. There experiments will be carried on, in the language of The Code, “ on the nutrition and growth of plants with a view to ascertain what fertilizers are best suited to the various crops of this State, and whether other crops may not be advantageously grown on its soils." The General Assembly of 1887 established the North Caralina College of Ag. riculture and Mechanic Arts, near the City of Raleigh, and connected this Experiment Station with it. It also directed that the whole of the funds appropriated to this State by the Congress of the l'oited States by the bill known as the “ Hatch Bill” should be devoted to this Experiment Station. The work of the Station will be greatly enlarged under this act.

This will be the central othice of the State Weather Service, an organization of voluntary observers and displaymen, for collecting climatic statistics and study. ing the meteorology of this State, and for publishing frost and other weather warnings.
