The UGA Cotton Production Workshop that is co-sponsored by The University of Georgia and Georgia Cotton Commission is held on the same day as the Commission’s annual meeting. The workshop sessions are conducted by the Cotton Team Scientists who will share with producers the latest production strategies learned from research funded by the Commission using growers' dollars. The workshop sessions cover a wide range of topics, as reflected on the workshop schedule. There will be early morning concurrent workshop break-out sessions and they will be repeated following the the Commission's luncheon and the Georgia Quality Cotton Awards presentations.
There is no charge to attend this educational event and the Commission hopes all cotton growers will attend.
