Georgia cotton, peanut research field day Sept. 7

The Georgia Cotton Commission, Georgia Peanut Commission and the University of Georgia Extension Cotton and Peanut Teams will cosponsor a joint research field day Sept. 7 in Tifton, Ga. 

The Georgia Cotton Commission, Georgia Peanut Commission and the University of Georgia Extension Cotton and Peanut Teams will cosponsor a joint research field day Sept. 7 in Tifton, Ga. 

The field day will start at 8 a.m. at UGA’s Gibbs Farm (226 William Gibbs Road) before relocating the Georgia Museum of Agriculture & Historic Village (1392 Whiddon Mill Road) for a lunch. Those planning to attend need to RSVP by Friday, Sept. 2, to Michela Rineair at msrineair@uga.edu 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 Mike Lucas, respectively, says 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 firsthand the research program funded by their checkoff investments.
