Morris Crop Marketing exists with the purpose of providing a personalized crop marketing service to row crop producers located in both the Arkansas and Mississippi Delta regions. By utilizing the resources and tools necessary for success, Morris Crop Marketing acts as the marketing branch of your farming operation. Morris Crop Marketing offers a constant source of market information and operates with the goal of helping the producer stay on top of local and global markets, while assisting the producer with the execution and organization of their cash sales.
Market information is everywhere, on our phones, computers, television and radio. Anyone can access this information, and if you listen to a few daily market reports, you hear basically the same thing. While still important and not to be ignored, this easily accessible information is broad in nature and lacks specific information which affects the price of your crops in your specific area. At Morris Crop Marketing, local information is at the core of our crop marketing philosophy. Specifically, local information includes basis movement, freight availability and short-term buyer needs. To make sure that no detail is overlooked in our focused markets, Morris Crop Marketing works ONLY with row crop producers in Arkansas and Mississippi. Morris Crop Marketing communicates with local buyers to keep the producer informed and to help guide them in regards to their cash sales. Morris Crop Marketing offers services to SOYBEAN, CORN, WHEAT AND RICE farmers.
Trey Morris was born and raised in the Delta region of Arkansas and possesses 10+ years experience in the grain industry. Trey began his career in the grain business working as a commodity broker and grain market analyst in Chicago before moving back home to work on the cash side of the grain business. His most recent professional role as a grain merchandiser allowed him to serve row crop producers in both the Arkansas and Mississippi Delta regions. In this role, Trey developed a great sense of how grain moved throughout the Delta and what outside factors led to certain price fluctuations and marketing challenges. Wanting to provide a crop marketing service with a local feel and presence, Trey formed Morris Crop Marketing, LLC. Trey utilizes both his commodity brokerage and cash grain experiences to help his clients navigate the cash grain markets. He believes that constant communication and understanding the specific needs of each producer's operation are the key elements to the success of marketing cash crops.
Morris Crop Marketing is located in Oxford, Mississippi and is a short drive to many parts of the Delta areas that the company serves. Trey lives in Oxford with his wife and daughter.
