38th Annual Georgia Peanut Farm Show set for January 16, 2014, in Tifton, Ga.
Released: Dec. 10, 2013

TIFTON, Ga. —Make plans now to attend the 38th Annual Georgia Peanut Farm Show and Conference scheduled for Thursday, January 16, 2014, at the University of Georgia Tifton Campus Conference Center in Tifton, Ga. The one-day show is open to all farmers and industry representatives and free to attendees.  

Peanut farmers will have the opportunity to visit with more than 90 agribusinesses and organizations in the peanut industry. Also, farmers are able to earn private and commercial pesticide applicators certification and learn up-to-date knowledge on cutting edge research and developments during the University of Georgia Peanut Production Seminar and the industry-wide sponsored Peanut Seed Seminar.

Farm Show Chairman Rodney Dawson is optimistic about the 1,500 plus farmers estimated to be in attendance. “I encourage farmers to leave their fields and attend this one day show and conference because the information they will receive is an investment in their future. There is definitely a lot of knowledge to be gained at the show,” Dawson says.

At the close of the day, there will be $40,000 in prizes presented to farmers for the Grand Door Prize, vendor products, certificates, and equipment. Donors include Kelley Manufacturing Co. and AMADAS Industries.
