Alcorn to host Monsanto America’s Farmers Mobile Experience January 12 and 13

On January 12-13, 2012, Alcorn will host Monsanto America’s Farmers Mobile Experience, a travelling display designed to educate consumers on modern agriculture and the challenges farmers face to meet the growing demands. The display will be stationed on the Lorman campus in the Jack Spinks Stadium Parking Lot (near the ASU shuttle stop). Tour hours are from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on January 12, and 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on January 13.

During the 24-minute tour, visitors will hear about the challenges America’s farmers face, watch a video that spotlights an American farm family, and learn about the tools and technology farmers use every day that help them meet increasing global demands.

The new mobile experience is a traveling 53-foot trailer that expands into 1,000-square-feet of interactive exhibit space and is touring the country, giving people across the nation the opportunity to learn more about the vital role America’s farmers play in today’s world.

The mobile tour is free and open to the general public.
