Jeremy Martin, Sandhills Reserch Station Superintendent

Jeremy Martin

Jeremy Martin

Jeremy Martin is the superintendent at the Sandhills Research Station in Jackson Springs. He and his staff grow and monitor about 20 acres of peach trees as part of a research effort by North Carolina State University.

On a day-to-day basis, Martin and the research station staff are responsible for growing the crops according to the research objectives, collecting data and providing crop performance reports for Raleigh-based faculty. Their work supports variety development and field evaluation of new cultivars. One of the emerging areas of research involves season extension technologies to expand the market for North Carolina growers.

In addition to peach projects,  Martin also oversees research on grain and fiber crops (soybeans, corn and cotton), turfgrass and other fruits including blackberries, raspberries, strawberries and blueberries. He began his career at the Sandhills Station in 2006 as Horticulture Unit Manager. In August 2012 he became Interim Superintendent, then named Superintendent in June 2013.

The station hosts grower groups and field days to showcase the latest research outcomes.
