The DREC entomology department’s goal is to solve problems by conducting applied and fundamental research to create and disseminate knowledge and information that enriches the lives and profitability of Delta residents and farmers, improves and protects the environment, professionally effects policy making, and develops a workplace that promotes excellence, teamwork, and a high work ethic through applied entomological sciences.
The educational component of the department is to broadcast information through the programs of Mississippi State University Extension Service, journal publications, public meetings, and field and laboratory testing. The Department endorses its teaching, research, education, and regulatory missions while at the same time developing scientific advocates and leaders in the science of entomology.
