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. Each year, Georgia sod producers and other members of the industry, including equipment manufacturers, gather for the annual Sod Field Day. This photo shows a sod harvester being demonstrated.

Wayne Parrott, professor of crop and soil sciences at the University of Georgia, believes that genetically improved plants will help feed the world, and he's traveled the globe to help connect farmers and scientists with what they need to make that happen. Since coming to UGA in 1988, Parrott's laboratory has served as an international flagship for genetic research in soybeans and other crops. He's spent almost the last three decades not only developing new soybean varieties and researching the human and environmental safety of genetically modified crops. CAES News
