PERRY, Ga. — UGA CAES will host row crop field days throughout the state. During the field days, attendees will see firsthand the research that UGA’s world-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, cover crop management, precision ag and more. Pesticide credits will also be offered.
