Agribusiness

No matter how you look at it, Mississippi offers the perfect environment for growth.

For hundreds of years, people have come to Mississippi to grow crops, timber and other commodities. But our state is perfect for growing any kind of agribusiness, thanks to our well-trained, skilled and productive workforce. Many of Mississippi’s leading post-secondary institutions have their roots in agriculture and continue that tradition today with innovative agricultural science research and partnerships.
