The purpose of the field day is to showcase current research, which is funded by the respective commissions, in plot-side presentations by the researchers themselves. The sponsors’ goal is to provide an educational environment for cotton and peanut producers and give them the opportunity to pose questions directly to the researchers and to express opinions and concerns pertinent to the production of their crops.


Please RSVP to Mrs. Debbie Rutland at 229-386-3424 or by Thursday September 3rd, 2015 if you plan to attend, so that we can have an accurate head count for the meal.
