The Southern Horticultural Laboratory (seen here in an architectural watercolor rendering) will be located at ARS' Small Fruits Research Station in Poplarville, Mississippi, when completed. The 30,000-square-foot facility will cost about $10 million to build. It will accommodate 50 scientists and support personnel from both ARS and Mississippi State University. Researchers will have backgrounds in such diverse science disciplines as horticulture, genetics, plant physiology, entomology, plant pathology and postharvest physiology.
