Jeff Davis County Extension

The beginning of the year is when County Agents get their training updates from UGA Extension Specialists. It is also the time we bring the specialists in to give farmers in the county the most up-to-date information on all areas of agriculture. Below is the County Meetings that have been scheduled up to this point. There may be additions as they year goes on. You must call in to register 2 days prior for any of the meetings you plan to attend. Most have a planned meal and offer 1 hour of commercial and private pesticide license credit. If  you have questions contact your respective County Extension Office.
