Every year, at the Fisher Delta Research Center Appreciation Breakfast that precedes the annual Field Day, speakers come from across the state to support the center and talk about the state’s No. 1 economic driver – agriculture. This year, all invited speakers were instead welcomed to share virtual well wishes for the center and the producers, natural resources managers and landowners of southeast Missouri.
