James Santucci, who farms cotton in the Mississippi Delta and worked at the Stoneville Experiment Station for almost 50 years, talks about how the farming landscape in the Delta has changed in recent years and the many mechanical experiments (such as the parabolic subsoiler) that he worked on while at Stoneville. 

“You better think twice before you just jump into cotton. If you’re gonna get into cotton, you need to be there for the long haul.”
