It joins two of Georgia's most important row crops, peanut and cotton. And it's a great chance to efficiently use your time to see firsthand the latest in University of Georgia and USDA research and Extension efforts to support them.
The Georgia Cotton Commission, Georgia Peanut Commission and the University of Georgia cotton and peanut teams cosponsor what has now become the annual University of Georgia Cotton and Peanut Research Field Day. It will be Sept. 12 in Tifton, Ga.
"This is a great opportunity of producers of peanut and cotton, which most of our guys produces both in Georgia, to see just how important their check-off dollars are to research for these important crops and how that money is being used in a way to keep cotton and peanuts profitable," said John Beasley, UGA Extension peanut agronomist.
After the field day, lunch will be provided by the two commissions. Registration is free, but register ahead of time so they can get an accurate meal count. To register, call Sara Cates at 229-386-3006 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. Put cotton/Peanut Tour in the subject line in the e-mail, and she'll take care of it.
