CAES to host Georgia Ag Forecast meetings from Jan. 22 to Feb. 1

Sam Pardue, dean of the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, will serve as the keynote speaker at the upcoming Georgia Ag Forecast seminar series set for Jan. 22-Feb. 1. The annual meetings allow UGA agricultural economists to address Georgia’s farmers, lenders and agribusiness leaders about the latest trends and economic conditions in Georgia’s No. 1 industry: agriculture.

At the seminar’s six locations across the state—Bainbridge, Carrollton, Lyons, Macon, Tifton and Watkinsville—Pardue will discuss how CAES works with Georgia’s agricultural leaders and how the college works to help solve the issues facing rural Georgia.

CAES hosts the Georgia Ag Forecast seminar series every year. Economists from the UGA Center for Agribusiness and Economic Development and the college’s agricultural and applied economics department will present the economic outlook for Georgia’s producers with an emphasis on Georgia’s major commodities.

The Georgia Ag Forecast seminar series is presented by UGA CAES and the Georgia Department of Agriculture. For more information on the 2019 Georgia Ag Forecast series or to register, visit or search for #gaagforecast on social media.
