Cotton / Peanut Research Field Day – Tifton

Posted by romeethredge on August 28, 2015

The Cotton/Peanut Research Field day is coming up soon in Tifton.

The Georgia Cotton Commission, Georgia Peanut Commission and the University of Georgia Extension Cotton and Peanut Teams, will co-sponsor a joint research field day on Wednesday, Sept. 9, 2015, in Tifton, Georgia.

The field day will start at 8:30 a.m. at UGA’s Lang Rigdon Farm before relocating to the RDC Pivot around 11 a.m. Lunch will be held at the UGA Tifton Campus Conference Center at 12:45 p.m. Those planning to attend need to RSVP by Thursday, Sept. 3, to Debbie Rutland at drutland@uga.edu or 229-386-3424.

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, agree 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, first-hand, the research program funded by their checkoff investments.
