The 41st annual Georgia Peanut Farm Show and Conference will be Jan. 19 from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the University of Georgia Tifton Campus Conference Center in Tifton, Ga. The one-day show is free and open to all farmers and industry representatives.
Attendees will have the opportunity to visit with more than 100 agribusinesses and organizations in the peanut and agricultural industry. Farmers will be able to earn private and commercial pesticide applicators’ certification as well as learn about cutting-edge research and developments during the UGA Peanut Production Seminar and industry-wide sponsored Peanut Seed Seminar.
“I encourage farmers to attend this one-day show in Tifton,” said the show’s chairman Rodney Dawson. “The knowledge they will gain from industry representatives and seminars is an investment in the future of their farm.”
The Georgia Peanut Commission in cooperation with OneBlood will host a blood drive from 9:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. during the show. At the close of the day, there will be nearly $10,000 in door prizes presented to farmers, as well as a Grand Door Prize, vendor products, certificates and equipment.
