The North Carolina Department of Agriculture and First Union National Bank of Charlotte are teaming up to offer a cobranded Visa credit card that will help it promote the state's agricultural products.

The card, called "Goodness Grows in North Carolina," is the first such cobranded venture with a state agriculture agency. It will initially be marketed to farmers and other agricultural-related businesses, and future prospects will include business travelers and other residents who want to support commerce in the state.
