The 2023 Mid-South Farm and Gin Show is scheduled for Feb. 24-25, 2023, at the Renasant Convention Center in Memphis, Tenn. The 71st annual show features exhibitors from across the U.S. displaying new equipment and machinery, cutting-edge technology, and myriad products and services, representing all major Mid-South crops.

Tim Price, show manager and executive vice president of show sponsor Southern Cotton Ginners Association, said the show gives attendees an opportunity to not only take in all on display on the trade show floors, but attendees can also attend educational seminars on key issues. “Each year, there are opportunities to hear industry expert perspectives. There will be Ag Update seminars featuring market outlooks for cotton and grains, as well as an outlook on issues impacting agriculture,” he said.

Price noted agriculture has often had to adapt to a changing landscape, due to weather, regulation, trade issues, or geo-political events. “Regardless of how often we have adapted, change we are faced with navigating the change for the best outcomes for our operations,” he said. “This year’s Mid-South Farm and Gin Show will bring it all together in terms of helping attendees understand the far-reaching impacts of COVID as well as outlooks for the coming year.”

Seminars

An Ag Update Seminar on Friday, Feb. 24, features Joe Nicosia, head of the cotton platform at Louis Dreyfus Company, who will provide an outlook on cotton. “Joe’s insights are critical for cotton producers who look to Nicosia for direction on planting and marketing their crop,” Price said. The Saturday, Feb. 25, Ag Update Seminar features Richard Brock of Brock Associates, who offers an outlook for grains as well as economic policies that may impact agriculture over the next year. Both seminars start at 8:30 a.m. in the Cannon Center.

Additional educational opportunities are planned, including an international trade forum with Agricenter International. More details will be released as they become available. AgLaunch, which uses a farm-centric innovation platform to bring new ideas into agriculture, is expected to conduct its “Shark Tank” -like workshop where individuals and businesses present their ideas to the AgLaunch panel.

“The Mid-South Farm and Gin Show has much to offer attendees – from the trade show floor with hundreds of exhibitors and educational seminars. We know, too, that many attend the show to catch up with family and friends who also attend this event. We look forward to welcoming all to the Renasant Center in February.”

The Mid-South Farm and Gin Show is sponsored by Southern Cotton Ginners Association and Foundation, and Delta Farm Press.  Show hours are Friday, Feb. 24, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.; Saturday, Feb. 25, 9 a.m.– 4:30 p.m. Cash prizes are awarded daily at noon, 2 p.m., and 4 p.m.
