On August 11, Georgia cotton producers, University of Georgia faculty and staff and industry personnel will gather for the Midville Field Day at the Southeast Georgia Research and Education Center. To pre-register, visit https://bit.ly/3y8lyPQ.
At the field day, attendees will see firsthand the research that UGA’s first class group of extension scientists are conducting with producer funds via the Georgia Cotton Commission and Cotton Incorporated.
Field days give producers the chance to interact directly with researchers and ask questions about issues on their farm. Topics will include variety selection, pest management, irrigation, precision ag and more. Pesticide credits will also be offered.
There will be other field days this year. The dates are August 31 at the Southwest Research and Education Center in Plains, September 8 in Tifton for the Cotton & Peanut Field Day and September 28 in Northeast Georgia. If you have questions about these events, please contact your county UGA Extension office.
