Soybeans generate more total dollars for the farmers of northeast North Carolina than any other agricultural commodity. As a result, the County Extension Centers of Camden, Currituck, Pasquotank, and Perquimans jointly conduct, with the Albemarle Agribusiness Council, the annual NC Soybean Festival. The purpose of this event is to create an awareness of the economic importance of soybeans to the local economy, as well as to celebrate the history of soybeans in northeastern North Carolina. The program included a dinner, recognition of fourth grade students from each of the counties that were winners of a poster contest, and recognition of winners of the county soybean yield contest from each of the participating counties, as well as exhibitors that primarily are input suppliers for the farmers.

This year Pasquotank County got to honor Doug and Billy Mercer as their contest winner. They broke the 100 bushel mark with 100.2 bushels which gave them the highest yield in Pasquotank County and second highest in the state.
