On Wednesday September 8th 2021 in Tifton, GA the UGA Cotton and Peanut Teams will be hosting 2021’s UGA Cotton & Peanut Research Field Day. This annual event provides an excellent opportunity for anyone who is interested in learning more about our two most widely planted row crops here in Georgia.
We have planned a day which we hope will be both interesting and informative while allowing plenty of opportunities for the fellowship and fun we come to expect at a UGA Field Day in Tifton.
There is no cost to attend, we only ask that you RSVP if you plan to attend (just for a lunch headcount – call Mrs. Ashley Golden at 229-386-3366 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Georgia Cotton Commission and the Georgia Peanut Commission have graciously sponsored the field day’s lunch, in addition to continually providing the funding needed to support UGA’s research and education efforts.
For more details on speakers, locations and specific times be sure to take a look at the agenda (see attached).
In summary, the field day will start at the Tifton Campus Conference Center (TCCC) in the North Parking Lot at 8 AM. After a brief welcome, the trams will leave for the RDC Pivot at 8:15 AM. After four stops around the RDC Pivot, we will drive to the UGA Lang Farm to tour several trials and hear from more of our speakers. We will finish up the outdoor program prior to lunch (which will be at the TCCC) and hear from our economists inside as well as representatives of UGA’s administration and the Georgia Cotton & Peanut Commissions.
We look forward to seeing you there. Please feel free to share this email and invite anyone who may enjoy learning more about cotton and peanut production in Georgia.
See you Wednesday, September 8th in Tifton!
