Extension agents talk farming in Valdosta

November 12, 2003

Valdosta - County Extension Agents from all over the state are in South Georgia to talk about this year's farming season.

Georgia's annual Agricultural Professional Improvement Conference is being held in Valdosta. One hundred and sixty five county agents are touring local farms and learning about farming technology in the region.

They say its a chance to figure out what farmers are doing right, and what causes a bad crop. "We've had a lot of discussion about this year's crop, what's gone wrong, what's gone right, and what we can do better," said Mickey Fourakers, Lowndes Extension Agent.

Valdosta was chosen for this year's site because the Lowndes County Extension Agent, Mickey Fourakers, is president elect of the Georgia Association of County Agricultural Agents.
