UGA to host Cotton and Peanut Field Day
Published 12:35 pm Wednesday, September 1, 2010
The Georgia Cotton Commission, with the Georgia Peanut Commission and the UGA Extension Cotton and Peanut Teams, will co-sponsor a joint Research Field Day on Wednesday, September 8, in Tifton, Ga. The event will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. It will begin at UGA’s Gibbs Farm, near the intersection of I-75 and U.S. Highway 82. The purpose of the field day is to showcase for growers the current research through plot-side presentations by researchers. The sponsors’ goal is to provide an educational environment for cotton and peanut producers, giving them opportunity to pose questions directly to the researchers and to interact with the Commissions’ board members and staff. It is also a chance for growers to voice opinions and concerns about anything pertinent to the production of their crops. The sponsors urge cotton and peanut growers to mark their calendars and plan to attend this important event. It is an excellent place for producers to observe, first-hand, the research program funded by their check-off investment. There is no charge to attend the field day. Immediately following the tour, a lunch sponsored by the Georgia Cotton Commission and Georgia Peanut Commission will be served at the Blackshank Farm. Please confirm your attendance ahead of time to help with meal planning and contact Sara Cates at 229-386-3006.
