The Georgia Cotton Commission, with the Georgia Peanut Commission and the UGA Extension Cotton and Peanut Teams, will co-sponsor a joint Research Field Day on Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2012, in Tifton, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.  

The purpose is to showcase, for growers, current research in plot-side presentations by researchers.  

The sponsors’ goal is to provide an educational environment for cotton and peanut producers giving them opportunity to pose questions directly to the researchers and to interact with the Commissions’ board members and staff.  

It is also a chance for growers to voice opinions and concerns about anything pertinent to the production of their crops.  

The sponsors urge cotton and peanut growers to mark their calendars and plan to attend this important event. It is an excellent place for producers to observe, first-hand, the research program funded by their check-off investment.

There is no charge to attend the field day and it will begin at the UGA Gibbs Farm and immediately following the tour, a sponsored lunch will be served at the Blackshank Farm.  

The tentative schedule can be viewed and printed from the Georgia Cotton Commission’s website http://www.georgiacottoncommission.org/.
