Welcome to the Agricultural Economics website. As we continue to celebrate our 100th year as a department, please visit our Centennial site below to learn more about the history of the department. In 1913, under the direction of T.J. Brooks, the Department of Markets and Rural Economics was established and from the very beginning, we have been educating students to apply their economic training to address challenges and opportunities. Along the way, we incorporated research and outreach/extension into our mission. Today, we provide undergraduate programs in Agribusiness and Environmental Economics and Management and graduate programs in Agricultural Economics and Agribusiness Management. If you are a student visiting the site please know that we take a personal interest in you and your career. Please contact either me (turner@agecon.msstate.edu) or Dr. Randy Little (little@agecon.msstate.edu), our Undergraduate Advisor, if you have any questions. And thank you for visiting our site.
