Meeting with Cochran at the U.S. Capitol were (left to right): Ronnie Aguzzi of Cleveland, Curtis Berry of Tunica, Steele, Nolen Cannon of Tunica, Kirk Satterfield of Benoit, and Buddy Allen of Tunica. Rice production in Delta was valued at $141 million in 2013, ranking it among the top 10 commodities produced on Mississippi farms.
