It’s Who We Are
Experienced, reliable and respected are words that I believe describe our editors. Each one of these attributes requires a passion and background, which has served our publications well. It is not by chance that we are the most preferred verticals in the markets we serve.
Our editorial mission is to provide profitable production strategies to our farmers with information to improve their bottom line. We cover every stage of production — from land preparation, seed selection, crop protection through harvest. In addition, our editors have their hands on the pulse of the industry and are experts on marketing and legislation information that is critical to our subscribers.
Each one of our editors has extensive roots in their markets.
My partner, Mike Lamensdorf, is a fourth-generation farmer from Cary, Mississippi. He farms nearly 9,000 acres in the Mississippi Delta and owns a cotton gin.
Carroll Smith, our Cotton Farming editor, is the daughter of a Louisiana cotton farmer and has more than 30 years in ag journalism.
Amanda Huber writes The Peanut Grower and Corn South from her home on the farm in northern Florida — the Southern edge of peanut country.
Vicky Boyd is our Rice Farming and Soybean South editor. Vicky has been in the industry for more than 30 years. She is an alumna of the Rice Leadership Development Class.
I personally grew up on my father’s farm outside of Leland, Mississippi
