Exhibitor Information

On March 7 & 8, 2017, the 27th Annual Greenhouse Tomato Short Course was held in Raymond, Mississippi, at the Eagle Ridge Conference Center, 10 miles west of Jackson. You are invited to represent your company's products as an exhibitor at this educational event.

Last year, this program attracted about 100 participants from more than 20 states. These growers come to learn.

This is where you and your company come in.

Also, we are looking for a few companies interested in helping support the Greenhouse Tomato Short Course by sponsoring coffee breaks or meals. Please contact me if you would like to help out and we can discuss an appropriate level of support. All sponsors will be recognized verbally and with special signs during the program.

To qualify as a vendor, please submit the following Application to Exhibit with a check for $375 by mail, or register online after January 5. See the web site for details. The deadline for registration is February 17.

Combines began rolling in Mississippi Delta rice fields as soon as growers marked the beginning of August, but wet weather soon shut down early harvest attempts.

Bobby Golden, a rice and soil fertility agronomist with the Mississippi State University Extension Service, said yields are expected to be favorable when fields are dry enough for harvest, though overall acreage will be down this year.

PICAYUNE, Miss. -- What was once a Grade A dairy farm for more than 20 years now serves as the flower farm owned by Terri Doyle and her husband, Dave.

Located on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Coastal Ridge Farm offers fresh bouquets that can be found at Rouse's Markets in the New Orleans area and on the coast from May to November.

"The dairy industry had been getting tougher every year for small dairies," Terri Doyle explained. "When Hurricane Katrina hit and destroyed a lot of our property, Dave and I decided it was time to close the dairy."
