Farmers from across the Florida Panhandle, as well as southern Alabama and Georgia are invited to attend the 2020 Panhandle Row Crop Short Course. The meeting will be hosted by Jackson County Extension on Thursday, March 5 at the Jackson County Agriculture Conference Center (2741 Penn Ave., Marianna, FL).

This event focuses largely on the production of peanut and cotton. The speaker lineup includes Extension Specialists from both the University of Florida and Georgia. (I will be one of the speakers, talking about recent weather and the climate outlook for the growing season.) Topics include climate and market outlooks, variety performance, hemp production & regulations, and crop pest management. Access the full flyer here.
