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, and acts as the "Marketing Branch" of your farming operation. NO ONE knows for sure where the markets are going, but having the right tool(s) and plan in place and knowing where your marketing portfolio stands at all times can help prepare you to make those important marketing decisions when opportunities present themselves. Our crop marketing strategy strives to equally balance the strong need for risk management, while at the same time aiming to capture upside marketing opportunities as they are presented throughout the marketing year. Through this practice, we are able to stay focused on our main goal which is to keep your farming operation in business for not only you, but for many generations to come.
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. A few examples of "local information":
By keeping our focus specifically on the Arkansas and Mississippi Delta, we are able to keep an eye out for these opportunities, as they could at times have a very positive impact on your profitability. Morris Crop Marketing works with SOYBEAN, CORN, RICE and WHEAT farmers.
You will receive daily market texts in the morning and in the afternoon. This service will keep you updated on the most important news affecting both local and global markets. These texts are brief and to the point and covers all relevant row crop markets and other outside markets.
The marketing journal is emailed to you daily and provides marketing recommendations specific to your size and scope of operation and is region specific. Each journal takes into account on-farm storage and all available contracts (FP/Basis/HTA) that your local buyer(s) offers.
Every operation is different, there are different goals and budgets. A marketing plan is tailored to your specific operation, and you remain in full control of the decision-making. Morris Crop Marketing will monitor and make specific short and long-term marketing recommendations.
Should the client wish to use futures and options as a risk management tool within their marketing plan, Morris Crop Marketing refers its clients to Husk Trading and Investments, LLC. Husk Trading operates an office that is also located in Oxford, Mississippi.
A personalized operation spreadsheet will be set up and kept up to date so that your consultant and more importantly you, will know where your sales and prices relative to production stand at all times. This allows for a more efficient marketing plan that you and your consultant can follow together so that nothing is overlooked.
Markets can move quickly and stopping to call buyers to execute a recommended sale can get in the way of other farming obligations. If the client chooses, Morris Crop Marketing, LLC will communicate directly with the buyer(s) to execute a sale at a mutually agreed upon quantity and price. POA is required for execution under the "fully managed" tier.

Trey Morris was born and raised in the Delta region of Arkansas and possesses 13+ 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.
