We look at his career and plans when we come back..

Welcome back.

A legend in mississippi agriculture is retiring.

Dr. dennis dennis reginelli has served as an agronomic regional extension specialist for mississippi state university extension service for nearly 40 years..

Reginelli is a familiar face to farmers and business people.

Our jory tally joins us live in the studio with a look at his career and future..

Although he is retiring from the extension service, he's not done working.

A new chapter begins next month.

The work will still be ag related, but his day to day activities will be different than what he's been doing.

Dr. dennis dennis reginelli knows agriculture.

He's worn several hats in the extension service for nearly 35 years.

Most of those years, he's worked in noxubee county.

"i've been on every farm in th county i know every road in the county and i pretty much know all of the home owners in the county also because when you are a county agent they call on you and i was fortunate to have good people in the county to work with people that really cared about their gardens or their farms or their pastures or their forestry or cattle."

Reginelli started his career in 1985 in pontotoc.

He moved on to noxubee county in 1991 as an extension agent.

He became a regional specialist in 2002.

"noxubee county is a count that many people look up to some people will say let's look at noxubee county from a corn cotton soybean production because we are successful we have outstanding growers we have outstanding yields and we have a top-quality producers so we are looked at as a favorite in the state."

Helping farmers find solutions to problems and make the best decisions is what reginelli knows best.

"and therefore what is th economic impact can i save some money here do i really need to do it you know what is going to be the impact so many times it is a dollar figure that you impact them with can i change their variety selection or can i change some of their management practices."

Msu extension agent crayton coleman says reginelli has been a mentor to him and other agents across the entire state, and he will miss working with him.

"it has been great to see ou farmers adapt to practices that dr. reginelli recommend to help improve their quality of life here in noxubee county and all over the state of mississippi."

And with regenilli's new job as executive director of the mississippi soybean production board he will continue to help improve the quality of life all over the state.

" so i will still stay in th soybean industry i am not going out totally i will be working the entire state but i will work from home i will be able to set my own agenda in my own schedule but the main thing is to move the soybean industry forward."

A retirement ceremony will be held tomorrow for reginelli at the noxubee county civic center.
