This blog has been created as a new way to engage fruit and nut growers in Mississippi. Ideally, the blog will be updated frequently, supplying new and useful information and a variety of topics such as meetings, workshops, new research, industry goings-on, and other observations about fruit and nut crops as the season goes along. You have the opportunity to comment on the posts and help to shape the direction of this communication. Also, you can sign up and receive all new posts via email, an easy and convenient way to get your Mississippi Fruit and Nut crop news. As a companion, a quarterly newsletter will also be started in 2012. I will be sure to let you know when the first issue arrives. I look forward to hearing from you.
