After taking a few years off, the renowned Mississippi State Seed Short Course returned for its second consecutive year in 2016. This year’s program was sponsored by the MSU Extension Service and the Mississippi Agricultural and Forestry Experiment Station, and was held at the MSU’s Bost Extension Center.

The program focused on ‘bin to bag’ and explored a litany of topics of interest to Seed Industry members and producers.

Husch Blackwell attorneys Matt Grant and Megan Galey gave a presentation to attendees focused on the Intellectual Property and licensing issues encountered by seed industry members in addition to a review of seed labeling responsibilities and their varying provisions across several seed producing states.

Attendance was heavy and the organizers have confirmed that the Short Course will return in 2017.
