MSU researchers get new Extension Service roles
Mississippi State University has named two researchers to Extension Service appointments at the Delta Research and Extension Center. Entomologist Jeff Gore and rice agronomist Tim Walker will divide their work between the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station and the Extension Service. MAFES, the research arm of MSU’s agriculture division, is funded separately from Extension, MSU’s service branch.
Gore has worked as a MAFES researcher since 2007. Before joining MSU, he worked as an entomologist for the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Agricultural Research Service in Stoneville.
Walker will continue working as a rice agronomist and researcher, which he has done since 2007.
Gore and Walker have received numerous awards for their contributions in their fields.
