The Georgia Cotton Commission, with the Georgia Peanut Commission and the University of Georgia Extension Cotton and Peanut Teams, will co-sponsor a joint research field day on Wednesday, September 12, 2012, in Tifton. The purpose 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. Additionally, it presents a chance for the Commissions’ board members and staff to interact with growers and other attendees. Both Commissions urge cotton and peanut growers to mark their calendars and plan to attend this important event. This is an excellent place for cotton and peanut producers to observe, first-hand, the research program funded by their check-off investment.
We encourage cotton producers and interested parties to mark your calendars and plan to attend. Further details are forthcoming as plans develop.
