Thank you to Dr. Brett Rushing and MSU Extension Service Coastal Plains Branch for hosting our 3rd Annual Wildflower Trails of Mississippi Field Day.
The day began by taking a tour of Dr. Rushing’s test plots where he showed us his research of the difference in planting times and herbicide applications as well as plots that were planted with seed collected wildflowers along Mississippi highways.
We had several speakers including Shaun Broderick, Truck Crops Experiment Station; Pat Drackett, Crosby Arboretum; and Beth Foose, Little Bluestem Farm.
Thank you to our Keep Mississippi Beautiful Affiliate Directors who were able to join us: Martha Stubbs, Keep Mendenhall Beautiful; Evelyn Copeland, Keep Simpson Co. Beautiful; and Robin Rosenthal, Keep Indianola Beautiful.
The field day was a great success and we hope to see you all again at next year’s field day event!
