Conservation for Farm Profitability
March 21, 2023
Dr. Mark McConnell, quail biologist with the Mississippi Agriculture and Forestry Experiment Station, calls into the Crop Doctors’ Podcast studio in Stoneville to discuss opportunities with conservation programs in the U.S. Farm Bill. Mark works with precision ag data to increase field revenue by identifying low yielding areas where a Farm Bill conservation payment exceeds revenue from production. He and his group have developed software that helps inform this decision and are currently working to provide technical assistance to farmers across MS.
