2014 Muscadine Field Day a Success

The 2014 Muscadine Field Day was a great success. The cooperative event by Mississippi State University and the USDA-ARS is held every year in McNeill, MS. The weather was cool (relatively), so the crowd came out — about 110 in all. The educational portion of the program covered muscadine history, health properties, and pollination. Attendees were then free to ask questions and taste the ripe grapes. See the photos below for a quick peek at how it all went.
