June 19 field day covers increasing farm profits
GOODMAN, Miss. -- Farmers and producers can learn how to increase farm profits during a series of field days at the Alliance for Sustainable Agricultural Production Farm near Goodman.
Ellen Polishuk, a long-time Virginia vegetable grower, will return for part two of the Growing Farm Profits program on June 19. Her farm served as a case study in part one of this session earlier in 2015.
Topics include practical applications of profit management and decision making in the field. Participants also will tour two local farms that use these strategies.
The field day begins at 10 a.m. and ends at 3:30 p.m. Attendance is free, but preregistration is required. Lunch and materials will be provided.
Field days are scheduled for the third Friday of each month. The last field day is set for Dec. 11.
To register for the field day or for more information, contact Keith Benson at 601-988-4999 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Alliance for Sustainable Agricultural Production is located in Holmes County between Goodman and Durant. It is 1 mile southwest of Highway 51 at 1184 Coleman Road.
The Southern Sustainable Agriculture Working Group, or Southern SAWG, is partnering with the alliance to produce this month’s field day.
The Mississippi State University Extension Service, Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, Alcorn State University Extension Program and University of Mississippi Transactional Legal Clinic produce the series. The Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce and U.S. Department of Agriculture Specialty Crop Grant Program fund it.
