The Georgia Cotton Commission, Georgia Peanut Commission and the University of Georgia Extension Cotton and Peanut Teams will co-sponsor a joint research field day on Sept. 6 in Tifton, Ga.
The field day will start at 8 a.m. at UGA's Lang Farm (230 Rigdon Aultman Road) before relocating to the Tifton Campus Conference Center (15 RDC Road) for lunch. Those planning to attend need to RSVP by Aug. 30 to Michela Rineair at [email protected] or 229-386-3006.
The purpose of the tour is to showcase current research, which is funded by the respective commissions, in plot-side presentations by the researchers themselves. The sponsors' goal is to provide an educational environment for cotton and peanut producers and give them the opportunity to pose questions directly to the researchers and to express opinions and concerns pertinent to the production of their crops.
Chairmen of the peanut and cotton commissions, Armond Morris and Bart Davis, respectively, agree this event presents a chance for the commissions' board members and staff to interact with growers and other attendees. It is an excellent place for both commodities' producers to observe, first-hand, the research program funded by their checkoff investments.
