Cotton/Peanut Research Tour
Farmers visit with Dr. Tim Brenneman on a research plot looking at improving the effectiveness of fungicide application by spraying at night on the recent cotton/peanut research tour at the University of Georgia's Tifton Campus.
The tour was the first ever cotton/peanut research tour and was the result of a joint effort by the Georgia Cotton Commission and the Georgia Peanut Commission.
The Cotton Commission has done a research tour for years and invited the Peanut Commission to join the effort.
Farmers in attendance were complimentary of the effort and suggested that it should become an annual event.
I am very excited about this and other things we can do with the Cotton Commission. We have a lot of brainpower in both and working together will be good for our farmers.
