Georgia Ag Forecast

Agriculture touches our lives deeply—whether you're a producer, an agribusiness, a policymaker or a consumer. From the local farm in Georgia to the globally stocked supermarket, food and fiber make our lives better. And with information on the upcoming growing season, the Ag Forecast Seminars can help make your life a little easier.

The University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, Georgia Farm Bureau and the Georgia Department of Agriculture presents the Georgia Ag Forecast every year. In each session, UGA faculty will give an overview of the upcoming year, and a regional speaker will discuss the hottest topics in Georgia agriculture. All of this will be followed by a Q&A session and a networking lunch. Participants will leave the meeting with a preview of the upcoming year and a copy of that years Ag Forecast Book, which provides a detailed analysis of each major product produced in Georgia.

Farm Succession Planning

Have you thought about the future of your business? What happens if none of your children want to take over the farm? These concerns and more will be addressed by our keynote speaker, Will Thompson. Thompson, a Macon attorney, will speak about farm succession planning and offer advice for farmers and agribusiness owners.
