June 9, 2005

Tifton- One of the programs the Governor is pushing gives high-tech help to farmers all over the state.

The Georgia Centers of Innovation recently opened in Tifton. It is set up to help entrepreneurs develop new technologies in agriculture here in Georgia.

"So if we can use that technology to help them more efficiently produce their crops and create jobs in Georgia, then that's what we're here to do," said Bill Boone, director of the center.

Some of the projects the center is helping with now is a food line made from peanut flour and an irrigation system a farmer can control from a home computer.
