Corn Shortcourse – Tifton, Ga

Posted by romeethredge on January 2, 2013

Here’s a word from Dr. Dewey Lee, Extension Agronomist-Grains, about the upcoming Corn Shortcourse.

“I’m excited about this year’s corn short course and annual meeting of the Georgia Corn Growers Association. I hope you will plan to attend and bring a fellow grower.

The sessions will focus on what it takes to capture yield potential and maximize your profits in 2013. Research and extension scientists are scheduled to discuss projects funded by your check off dollars and share their advances in corn production and technology. In addition, we have three NCGA National Corn Contest winners (GA, Texas and Missouri) here to discuss the keys to their top corn production. Exhibitors will also be there to provide up-to-date information on various products. Awards will be presented to the 2012 winners of the Georgia High Yield Production Efficiency Awards program during lunch.

Door prizes will be given away at the end of the day’s program. Applications for credits for pesticide licenses and certified crop advisors hours have been made.

The corn short course is sponsored by the Agricultural Commodity Commission for Corn, The University of Georgia and Cooperative Extension Service. We hope you can attend January 15, 2013 at the Tifton Campus Conference Center in Tifton for this excellent educational opportunity.”
