Mississippi Delta begins long road to harvest

It’s a timeless Delta scene as fields fill with crops and the growing season sets in. Cotton, beans, corn, rice and peanuts have made their acreage claims as farmers tend their fields and start the long road to harvest. Technology and technique will always change; but Delta dirt remains the same — the lifeblood of the region’s agricultural heritage.
