Georgia schedules cotton, peanut field day

Anyone who wants to see firsthand the latest cotton and peanut research conducted by University of Georgia scientists should attend the annual UGA Cotton and Peanut Field Day Sept. 9 in Tifton, Ga.

The event will start at 8:30 a.m. at the UGA Tifton Lang-Rigdon Farm on Carpenter Road.

Hot topics will include peanut disease management, stink bug control, crop fertility and current and future varieties of both crops.

“Participants will not only get to see the research for these two important Georgia crops, they’ll be able to hear from the researchers and ask them questions about it,” said Phillip Roberts, a UGA Cooperative Extension entomologist and the field day organizer.

Lunch is provided. Along with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, the event is co-sponsored by the Georgia Peanut Commission and Georgia Cotton Commission. To find out more or get directions, call (229) 386-3424.
