This month's Agri Arkansas continues our look into agriculture in each of Arkansas's 6 physiographic regions. The Gulf Coastal Plain encompasses much of the southern part of the state; with the Ouachita Mountains bordering the north and the Delta to the east. As with other physiographic regions in the state, agriculture plays an important role in the Gulf Coastal Plain. Also, we examine best management practices for timberland. Panelists include Dr. Victor Ford, Director and Professor with the University of Arkansas's Division of Agriculture Research and Extension Center in Hope and Bruce Jackson, a rancher and farmer in Sevier County.
