1000 ASU Drive, Lorman, Mississippi 39096-7500The Small Farm Incubator Center is located in Preston, Mississippi. The Center has established in 1997 as a permanent teaching laboratory and educational training site for small and/or limited- resource farmers in surrounding counties who are wishing to farm but have limited farming experience. The Center provides an opportunity for small farmers that are interested in the production of horticultural crops, livestock production (i.e. pasture poultry) and agro forestry to acquire hands-on training under the guidance of a horticulture or animal science specialist. The purpose of the Center is to increase the number and success of limited-resource individual interested in becoming farmers, but who do not have land, and provide an opportunity to move them to an inventory farm. Individuals selected to engage in the incubator program are required to participate in a comprehensive training program. The extent of the training will be based upon individuals’ past farming experiences. Selected farmers will be assigned an economic tract of land up to 3 acres of land based upon his/her labor and the personal interest, rent-free, for an extended period of time.

1000 ASU Drive, Lorman, Mississippi 39096-7500Alcorn State University has sought to serve the needs of non-served and under-served, limited-resource farmers and rural residents throughout Mississippi. The Agricultural Research Program at Alcorn State University in general, is, therefore, designed to discover new knowledge and to provide solutions to problems confronting agricultural productivity and profitability. Although not limited to this scope, the primary mission of the research is to seek answers to problems of limited-resource rural dwellers in Southwest Mississippi. While specifically are geared toward assisting farmers in Southwest Mississippi, the research program at the Alcorn Experiment Station has statewide, national, and international significance. The Alcorn Experiment Station (AES) was jointly established by Alcorn State University (ASU) and Mississippi State University (MSU) as a branch of the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station (MAFES) by Act of the State Legislation in 1970. This legislation mandated ASU as a Land Grant Institution to conduct research in agriculture and provide cooperative extension services geared towards improving socioeconomic conditions and quality of life for limited resource farmers in Mississippi, the nation and the world.
1000 ASU Drive, Lorman, Mississippi 39096-7500The current trend for the production of bio-fuel from agricultural products has reduced agricultural land availability for the production of food and feed. A large portion of the land previously devoted for the production of grains for feeding cattle is now dedicated to crops for ethanol production. Therefore, it is imperative to make changes and adjustments to improve production efficiency in the cattle industry through innovative research. Relevant biological factors to advance production in the livestock industry deal with reproduction efficiency and genetic improvement on traits associated with production. Researchers at Alcorn State University are currently working on manipulating follicular dynamics to enhance reproduction efficiency in beef cattle. Additionally, an embryo transfer research project has been established since 2003 as a means to improve the genetics of the beef herd. This project has a second objective to improve retention rates of transferred embryos with the use of hormonal protocols. It is believed that improving retention rates would make small and medium sized farmers more receptive to the use of the embryo transfer technique. Embryonic retention remains as one of the main concerns limiting the application of embryo transfer within cattle producers. This concern is based on data reporting embryo losses of more than 40% during the first 18 days of gestation in cattle and sheep, and even higher during the summer months.

We believe that every researcher across the world should be able to connect with the thousands of global CROs that exist and have the opportunity to work together. Like many industries,the life science supply chain has been disrupted over the last year. But there are many other circumstances such as international customs regulations or sensitive shipping times that create limitations around which countries are feasible to partner with. Sometimes, finding a CRO based in a country that best suits your research needs is imperative. We hope this contract research map allows you to find the right partner in the right place at the right time.
