In 2015, Alabama Farmers Cooperative and Alabama Farmers Federation established Simply Southern, the state’s first statewide network television show dedicated to agriculture and rural living. Simply Southern inspires and educates viewers about farming, food and gardening while entertaining with stories about innovative entrepreneurs, talented artisans, outstanding young people and Alabama’s hidden treasures.
Genome Sequencing Center co-directors Jane Grimwood, PhD and Jeremy Schmutz were featured on the season 2 premier of Simply Southern to discuss plant genomics at HudsonAlpha. Grimwood and Schmutz were also featured in the Alabama Farmers’ publication, Neighbors. Read the story here.
