GCC Advises Farmers About Row Crop Field Days

Clint Thompson Georgia Cotton Commission (GCC)

The Georgia Cotton Commission and University of Georgia (UGA) Extension encourage producers to mark their calendars for various row crop field days that will be offered over the next couple of months. Attendees will see firsthand the research that UGA Extension scientists are conducting with funds via the Georgia Cotton Commission and Cotton Incorporated.


The row crop field days provide farmers the opportunity to interact with the researchers and ask questions about issues most prevalent on their farms. Topics include variety selection, pest management, cover crop management, precision agriculture and more. Pesticide credits will also be offered.
