Hardwick Planting Company in partnership with the LSU AgCenter received the Southern Cotton Ginners Association Ag Achievement Award at the annual meeting held March 1 at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis.

The meeting was held in conjunction with the 66th Annual Mid-South Farm and Gin Show sponsored by the Southern Cotton Ginners Association and Delta Farm Press. The AgCenter and the LSU College of Agriculture were featured at the 2018 show.

Tensas parish farmer Jay Hardwick and sons, Marshall and Mead, were honored along with the AgCenter for the development and adoption of agriculture research promoting innovation, efficiency, quality, safety and conservation practices.

“Here we have an example of an intergenerational success story,” said Tim Price, Southern Cotton Ginners Association executive vice president and show manager.

The award recognizes farm families working with land-grant universities for their contribution to research and support of the commercial viability of innovative farming operations, Price said.
