Greg Hoyt WNC ag hall of fame inductee for 2022

Dr. Greg Hoyt, retired Professor and Extension Specialist for the Dept. of Soil Science, was inducted into the Western NC Agricultural Hall of Fame on Friday 8/12. Dr. Hoyt has been a leader in soil management and conservation, and from 1981 until his retirement from NC State University in 2012, was a faculty member at the Mountain Horticultural Crops Research Station (MHCRS), and Mountain Horticultural Crops Research & Extension Center (MHCREC) in Mills River, NC. The focus of his work across the state has been in conservation tillage (no-till), crop rotation, nutrient cycling and cover crops, all associated with crop systems that include field corn, tobacco and several vegetables.

The WNC Ag Hall of Fame recognizes individuals who have been responsible for agricultural advancement in western NC and beyond, and Dr. Hoyt joins seven previous Hall of Fame inductees who also worked at MHCRS/MHCREC. Plaques honoring all inductees are on display inside the Davis Event Center at the Western NC Agricultural Center in Fletcher, NC.
