The 2012 Muscadine Field Day was held at the Mississippi State University Beaumont Horticultural Unit on August 16, 2012.  It was a smashing success with 70 attendees.  See the photos below provided by Dr. Gary Bachman to get a sense of what occurred.  We hope to see you next year.

  1. Eric, Thanks again for coming this way to meet with growers. Well, I opened my mouth and put myself into some extra work, so I need your advice. I told Joe Street that I would be willing to go ahead and do some work at Mr. Keller’s farm , but I had no money. So, he said he could get me $500 or so to do something. He wants a proposal of what I am going to do. I am going to meet with Keller next week and see what he thinks. What are some inexpensive, easy research ideas I could do on his farm? Might even just have to be a trial study about fruit growth in N.MS? When you stop laughing about what I have gotten into, send me some ideas of what I can do, PLEASE!!!!! Thanks, Jeff Wilson
