Farmers in Southwest Georgia collaborated with researchers today to come up with ways to improve crop yields.

Cotton and Peanut Field Research Day is an annual event where farmers see how crops have done all over the surrounding area and what can be done to  improve them for next year.

Speakers from the Georgia Agricultural board got to share new ideas and hear some of farmers' needs for the upcoming crop season. 

"We're growing food and fiber safer and more efficient in Georgia, than we ever have.We're producing more on less acres and now more efficient," said Bart Davis, cotton and peanut farmer.

Area farmers pay fees to the Georgia Cotton Commission Board. 

The money is used for research in this event.
