The article presents information on Brinkley farms and its owner Jackie Brinkley. The Brinkleys have a long history of innovation and commitment to excellence. In 1972, their farm was the first in eastern North Carolina to win statewide recognition for soil conservation. In 1985, Brinkley was honored as Soil Conservationist of the Year. In recent years, they have used cost-share monies to implement water and soil conservation projects, such as installing field strips and grassy borders for nutrient and erosion management. In 2002, the Brinkley's farm participated in a cotton nitrogen rate study with the NCDA&CS and the U.S. Natural Resources Conservation Service to develop estimates for realistic crop yields for better environmental stewardship.
