Corn Short Course Set Jan. 29 in Tifton

Corn growers have a don't-miss opportunity to learn how to better grow, manage and market their crop Jan. 29 in Tifton, Ga.

"The course will be a tactical marketing seminar," said Dewey Lee, agronomist with the University of Georgia Extension Service.

Farmers today have to do more than just grow a good crop. With paper-thin profit margins, they must be successful at marketing too. "We'll show them what they need to do," Lee said, "to develop a strategy for marketing corn grown in Georgia."

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. at the Rural Development Center. It's $10 at the door, or $5 before Jan. 14.

For more information, call (229) 386-3430.
