The 66th annual meeting of the Georgia Plant Food Educational Society Winter Meeting and Tradeshow is underway this week in Tifton, Georgia.
The Tuesday and Wednesday Georgia Plant Food Educational Society event for crop advisors and producers continues to expand its program efforts and vendor trade show, taking place at the University of Georgia Tifton Conference Center for the sixth year in a row.
Jimmy Champion, with the Georgia Plant Food Educational Society, spoke on the ongoing event, “Our primary goal is to educate those who actually supply inputs – mainly fertilizers and related products – to farmers.”
The future of drone technology is on the program, along with the latest from the Georgia Department of Agriculture as state agriculture officials get wrapped into the upcoming legislative season. Also on the agenda is a legislative issues update from the Georgia Agribusiness Council. Attendees will also hear from state FFA leaders about what’s going on in Georgia FFA circles.
A water issues discussion on Wednesday might shed some light on the present status of the so-called “water wars” litigation going on between Florida and Georgia these days.
We’re on the scene visiting with participants, so stay tuned in the days ahead for more reports from the Georgia Plant Food Educational Society.
Immediately following the conclusion of the Winter Meeting and Tradeshow, the 14th annual Certified Crop Advisor Conference will be taking place in Tifton as well.
Listen to hear Champion discuss with AgNet’s Gary Cooper about the event history, target audience, and research efforts.
