Workshop Friday on the many uses for mesquite | Benson-News Sun | CALS in the News |

“Mesquite has the potential to become one of the major food crops in Arizona and the Southwest,” according to pioneering mesquite farmer Mark Moody, who tends a six-acre orchard of mesquite trees near Parker, Ariz. This high protein legume that mills into sweet nutritious flour can be raised on a third less water than other crops.
