Wheat Crop
Wheat prices are down, and wheat acreage in Georgia is dropping. To boost the state’s wheat industry and help producers get more out of their crop, University of Georgia Cooperative Extension small-grains specialist Reagan Noland is researching a dual-use system that would enable growers to use their wheat crop for grain and forage production.
Cotton roots infected with root-knot nematodes swell in response to the infection. These knots serve as feeding sites where nematodes (microscopic worms) grow, produce more eggs and stunt the plant's growth. CAES News

Nematodes
Mother Nature’s freezing January temperatures reduced nematode buildup in southern Georgia fields. But warmer temperatures this spring could spark nematode activity, according to University of Georgia Cooperative Extension plant pathologist Bob Kemerait.

UGA graduate student Abraham Fulmer shows Haitian agronomists working at the Meds & Food for Kids facility in Cap-Haitian, Haiti, how to identify leaf spot in peanut in December 2016. Fulmer, who recently completed a PhD in plant pathology at the University of Georgia, did research in Haiti with the Feed the Future Peanut & Mycotoxin Innovation Lab, which was at UGA from 2012 to 2017 . The federal government recently awarded UGA another five-year peanut research program to battle global food insecurity. CAES News

Peanut Lab
The University of Georgia has received a $14 million grant from the U.S. Agency of International Development to manage the Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Peanut Research, known as the Peanut Lab, a global peanut research program that works to alleviate hunger by helping farmers in developing countries grow healthy crops. The agreement builds on UGA and USAID’s long-standing partnership on global peanut research dating to the 1980s.

Whitefly Management
University of Georgia entomologists advise farmers to kill crops capable of hosting whiteflies after the crop is harvested a final time. Crops left in the field could continue to serve as hosts.
A survey of the state's sod inventory is conducted each year by University of Georgia Cooperative Extension and the Georgia Urban Ag Council.
