*Expo Field Day July 12 - Don't Miss It!*

Our most innovative Field Day yet is scheduled for Thursday, July 12, 2012.
Trams will depart for the fields by 8:30 a.m. We encourage visitors to
arrive early. Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture, Gary Black, and Georgia
Farm Bureau President Zippy Duval will host a biscuit breakfast reception
at 7:15 a.m. at the new Georgia Agriculture Building. We will hold an early
bird drawing for $100 cash for those attendees registering by 8:15 a.m. A
free lunch followed by door prize giveaways will take place after the tours
and ertifi*[image: fielday3]*ed rop advisor credits (CCA's) will also be
given. This is a half-day educational opportunity to see the latest in
seed, crop protection, irrigation, precision ag and equipment technology,
all in an applied research setting. Company representatives as well as
University researchers will make presentations on their newest technology.
Water conservation and irrigation technology continue to be a main focus at
Field Day. We are working in conjunction with researchers at the Flint
River Basin Partnership and Certified Ag Resources to show how remote soil
moisture monitoring technology can enhance water usage and conservation
through precise irrigation scheduling which takes into effect soil moisture
and temperature, crop growing stage and localized evapotranspiration. We
are also working with the BB Hobbs Company to show how drip irrigation
conserves water and again feeds the plant precise amounts of water at the
proper times. A new precision drain tiling project coordinated by Soil and
Water Agricultural Technologies will show how new drain tile technology
will enhance our ability to more efficiently remove excess water from our
fields. Reinke Irrigation and Valley Irrigation will both discuss the
latest in precision irrigation technology. In addition to tradition row
crops, the Expo will also highlight several new trials including: organic
peanuts/pearl millet, energy grasses such as switch grass, miscanthus,
energy cane and biomass sorghum and sesame production. Ag
Technologies, LLC continues
to be at the forefront of precision ag technology and will have
representatives on site discussing GreenSeeker, an on-the-go plant sensor
system that determines the health of a plant in real time and delivers the
optimum amount of nitrogen or plant growth regulator to improve yields.

also to be more interactive. While we've refined the design, we've also

introduced on the site, exhibitors and visitors will have the ability to:

[image: new web site screen shot]The website will be updated on a regular
