The annual agriculture forecast series organized by the University of Georgia’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences will be held in January.
The 2015 Georgia Ag Forecast meeting for Middle Georgia will be held Jan. 23 at the Georgia Farm Bureau, 1620 Bass Road in Macon, and registration is open at www.georgiaagforecast.com, according to a news release. The seminar begins with registration at 9 a.m. and will be followed by a networking lunch. Tables for eight are $200 each, and individual seats are $30 each.
The main objective of the meeting “is to provide Georgia’s producers and agribusiness leaders with information on where we think the industry is headed in the upcoming year,” Kent Wolfe, director of the UGA Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development, said in the release.
“It helps farmers plan what they’re going to plant in the next year, but it’s also good for bankers and other business people who do business with farmers or who will be impacted by the farm economy,” Wolfe said.
