Mississippi crop value drops 22% in 1998

The View from Here

I took time during the recent holiday break to read through a report on Mississippi agriculture. While the data is preliminary, it provides an accurate picture of what went right and what went wrong for ag production in 1998.

The report, published by Mississippi State University`s Office of Agricultural Communications, was thoroughly researched and well written by Linda Breazeale and Bonnie Coblentz. They put the impressive resources of MSU`s Extension Service to good use.

What did they find out?

Quite a lot. Some good. Some bad. All of it is relevant to Mississippi business.
