About Georgia Ag Forecast
As the state's number one industry, agriculture touches our lives every day—whether you're a producer, business tied to agriculture, policymaker or consumer. Predicting markets and preparing for the next growing season can be a tough job, and that's where we can help. Ag Forecast is an annual seminar series presented by the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences in partnership with Georgia Farm Bureau and the Georgia Department of Agriculture.
UGA, the state's flagship institution, is committed to sharing the latest research and information to help make your life a little easier. Our agricultural economists will give the economic outlook for agriculture for the coming year.
Participants will get to network with local producers, stakeholders and UGA Extension agents. You will also leave the meeting with a copy of the 2015 Georgia Ag Forecast book, which is designed to give you a detailed analysis of each major commodity produced in the state.
Georgia Ag Forecast is organized by the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. This event is made possible through the Georgia Farm Bureau Land Grant University Lecture Series Endowment and supported by the Georgia Department of Agriculture and the Georgia Agribusiness Council.
