CMREC Mission & History
Mission & History
The mission of the Center is to develop a research and extension program based on a regional geographic area that would effectively serve the needs of the central and southern parts of the state with research, technology, and educational programs to improve the economic well being of the agricultural producers, industry, rural and urban citizens.
In 1990, a unique partnership was established between Hinds Community College, MAFES, MSU Extension Service and Mississippi State University to have the Central Mississippi Research and Extension Center located on the Hinds Agricultural campus in Raymond, Mississippi.
With the establishment of this partnership MAFES scientists, Extension and Hinds agricultural personnel develop educational programs, establish crop and livestock demonstrations of the latest agricultural technologies, and cooperate to provide research results and extension programs to the area clientele.
