2017 Research Review Day

In this week’s Georgia Cotton Commission update we want to discuss our Research Review Day. Each year the Georgia Cotton Commission board, staff, and Research Advisory Board spend a day with the UGA Cotton Team in Tifton reviewing research. We’ve mentioned before, but it must be noted, that the Commission typically spends about $600,000 on cotton research each year, with most of that being in the UGA Tifton area. The Research Review Day is important because it allows direct conversation between the Georgia Cotton Commission and the UGA Cotton Team on the need and direction of current and future research. This benefits both parties as the Commission gets to see exactly how their research dollars are spent, and the UGA Cotton Team gets comments directly from growers about their research projects. Topics from the Research Review Day run the gamut of cotton production: from pre-plant herbicide strategies all the way through defoliation. All of the Commission funded research projects can be found on our ‘Producer’ page at GeorgiaCottonCommission.orgIMG_6800
