UGA visits Northeast Georgia farms
Agriculture has a more than $72 billion impact on Georgia's economy. From the assistance offered through UGA Cooperative Extension to research that enhances their ability to feed people throughout America and around the world, farmers and food industry leaders rely on UGA's expertise.
In early September, UGA President Jere W. Morehead (JD '80) saw the close partnership between the agricultural industry and the university as he toured several northeast Georgia farms, and food processing and biosecurity facilities with Commissioner of Agriculture Gary Black (BSA '80), Sen. John Wilkinson (BSA '77, MED '82), chairman of the Georgia Senate's Agriculture and Consumer Affairs Committee; Rep. Terry England, chairman of the Georgia House's Appropriations Committee; and J. Scott Angle, dean and director of the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. Learn more.
