Darrin Dodds, Extension cotton spe- cialist, said potential profits and pest man- agement costs weigh heavily on cotton plant- ing decisions every year. These factors do not add up favorably for cotton. "The decrease to less than 300,000 acres is caused by potentially poor profits from cotton production compared to those of grain crops, as well as the challenges associated with cotton production," Dodds said. "The acres leaving cotton are going prima- rily to corn, but soy- beans are expected to pick some up as well." USDA predicts soy- bean acreage in Mississippi will drop 20,000 acres, or I per- cent, to 1.95 million acres in 2o13. Trent Irby, Extension soybean specialist, said producers' recent expe- rience with strong prices and good yields are encouraging them to plant many acres of this Perkinston Elementary and at Stone Elementary School on Fri., Feb. 21, 2o13.

"If weather prohibits timely planting in early spring, soybeans often pick up additional acres when producers switch from a planned crop to later-planted soybeans," Irby said. Winter wheat saw an 8 percent increase in acreage to 400,000 acres planted for a 2o13 harvest, but the rest of continued from front the state's major crops face declines. Rice acreage is expect- ed to fall slightly to 120,000 acres, down 8 percent from last year. Sorghum is expected to drop 6 percent to 45,ooo acres, and hay acres are anticipated to drop 5 percent to 71o,ooo acres.
