2019 PIE tour from the perspective of a tree farmer’s daughter

Here is a closer look at 2019 Mid-South PIE tour with pictures taken while following the tour.

From the perspective of a tree farmer’s daughter, farming crops, such as cotton and corn, is an entirely different process. While trees take years to grow and don’t require a lot of regular upkeep to produce a good harvest, crop farmers have a much more rushed process of planting, watering, spraying, and constant upkeep of equipment until the crop has been harvested, and then they start preparing for the next season.

There are a lot of small details to keep in mind and even bigger concerns like the weather that farmers face every day. That is why an event like the Producer Information Exchanges 2019 Mid-South tour sponsored by the National Cotton Council is a valuable week-long trip that farmers from across the country can join to interact with other growers about important issues and concerns in agriculture.
