It’s time to register for the 2013 annual Georgia Ag Forecast seminar closest to you. 

This year, in recognition of the growing importance of the global marketplace to Georgia farmers, Georgia Department of Economic Development Director of International Trade Kathe Falls will deliver the keynote talks at the 2013 Ag Forecast series. The Farm-to-Port Ag Forecast will be held in locations across the state Jan. 25 to Feb. 1.

The meeting schedule is:

• Jan. 28:  Rome at the ECO Center
• Jan. 29:   Macon at the Georgia Farm Bureau Building
• Jan. 30:  Tifton at the UGA Tifton Conference Center
Jan. 31:  Bainbridge at the Cloud (Decatur County) Livestock Facility

• Feb. 1:  Lyons at the Toombs County Agri-Center

In each session, UGA faculty will give an overview of the upcoming season, and a regional speaker will discuss taking advantage of the growing international markets for Georgia’s exports.
