If there was any doubt Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant has a soft place in his heart for the Delta, Bryant put those to rest during a speech to the 77thannual meeting of the Stoneville, Miss.-based Delta Council. Bryant said he learned at the Agribusiness Summit he convened recently that agriculture in the Delta region accounts for $1.5 billion annual income and employs 55,000 people. He also pledged continued support for ag research activities in the region.
