Welcome to the Agricultural Economics website. Several faculty and students recently attended the Agricultural and Applied Economics Association annual meetings in San Francisco where faculty presented papers and students competed in a paper competition and quiz bowl. These professional meetings are important learning experiences and energize us to continue applying economic analysis to current and future issues. As the fall semester begins, several events are on the calendar. Our annual Welcome Back BBQ for students is scheduled for Tuesday, August 25, 2015 at 5:30 pm in front of Lloyd Ricks Watson building. The annual meeting of the Mississippi Agricultural Economics Association is scheduled for Friday, October 16, 2015 and the focus will on the future of production agriculture. Information on this meeting is located below.
The Department of Agricultural Economics is located in Lloyd Ricks Watson which sits at the south end of the Davis Wade football stadium. Every day, I look out of my office at the Junction and think of the progress of our football team, the University, and our department. We compete and win at the highest level. And our students are pursuing and securing careers that influence their communities and the world. If you are interested in joining us, either as an undergraduate or graduate student, please contact us.
