Horticultural Crops Now Recognized as Commodity


The Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation Board of Directors recently voted to establish horticultural crops as a recognized commodity in the state. Farm Bureau will be holding its Summer Commodity Meeting next Monday, July16 at the Mississippi State University Coastal Research and Extension Center from 9-noon. The meeting will offer valuable information to help producers grow and maintain current operations. Also, growers will help develop policies to guide Federation staff and the new Horticultural Crops Advisory Committee for the upcoming year.

    I’m sorry I missed this meeting — I was unaware of it.

      I read about it in the Farm Bureau magazine and crashed the meeting. It appears to be a committee in progress. I will be sure to keep you updated.
