Workshop on Stored Grains July 27 in Tifton

It's hard enough to grow a grain crop. Farmers certainly don't need to lose any of it after they've grown it. To help them maintain quality in stored grains, the University of Georgia will have a workshop July 27 at the Coastal Plain Experiment Station in Tifton, Ga.

The workshop sessions will cover the basic principles of grain drying, aeration, insect monitoring, protectant insecticides and fumigation.

Auburn University and the Alabama Wheat and Feed Grain Committee will cosponsor the training. It's designed for growers who store their grain on the farm. But county agents and industry representatives are invited to attend, too.

The workshop is free, but preregistration is required. To sign up, or to learn more about the program, call Debbie Rutland at (912) 386-3424.
