  • 2000-2001 Canola Performance Tests (RR 674)

    The 2000-2001 canola growing season was characterized by a dry and cool fall, an early and cold winter, and a mild spring. Soil conditions were extremely dry during September and October. This made land preparation difficult and, in some cases, delayed planting. Published on Mar 30, 2096.

  • 2012-2013 Georgia Small Grain Performance Tests (AP 100-5)

    This publication contains results of the 2012-2013 small grain performance tests in Georgia. Published on Jul 1, 2997.

  • 2013-2014 Georgia Small Grain Performance Tests (AP 100-6)

    This publication contains results of the 2013-2014 small grain performance tests in Georgia. Published on Jul 1, 2997.

  • 2014-2015 Georgia Small Grain Performance Tests (AP 100-7)

    Results of the 2014-2015 performance tests of small grains grown for grain and forage are printed in this research report. Grain evaluation studies were conducted at five locations in Georgia, including Tifton, Plains, and Midville in the Coastal Plain region; Griffin in the Piedmont region; and Calhounin the Limestone Valley region. Small grain forage evaluation tests were conducted at four locations in Georgia, which included Tifton and Plains in the Coastal Plain region, Griffin in the Piedmont region and Calhoun in the Limestone Valley region, and at Marianna, Florida. Published on Jul 1, 2997.

  • Commercial Southern Pea Production (C 485)

    This horticulture publication is about the commercial production of southern peas. Published on Jun 15, 2014.

  • Cowpea Curculio in Southern Pea (C 1038)

    This publication describes ways to identify and manage cowpea curculio damage in Southern pea. Published on Jun 15, 2014.

  • Designing Research and Demonstration Tests for Farmers' Fields (B 1177)

    As farmers and farm advisers, you make many management choices during a growing season. For example, you may have to decide which cultivar to plant, which herbicide to use, how frequently to apply a fungicide, and what rate of nematicide to use. Often the information needed to make the best decision is available to you, but when it is not available you can frequently compare the options by conducting your own small experiments. Your experiments can be just as valid as any university study if you follow a few important principles of experimental design. Published on Jan 31, 2017.

  • Planting Guide for Row Crops in Georgia (C 813)

    This planting guide will help producers establish grasses and legumes commonly grown in Georgia. Published on Nov 30, 2014.

  • Simulating Crop Rotations in the Coastal Plain with the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation 2 (C 961)

    Research shows the benefits of using conservation practices such as conservation tillage, vegetated waterways, adding organic soil amendments and reducing tillage operations. Published on Apr 30, 2015.

  • Simulating Crop Rotations in the Piedmont with the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation 2 (C 962)

    Research shows the benefits of using conservation practices such as conservation tillage, vegetated waterways, adding organic soil amendments and reducing tillage operations. Published on Apr 30, 2015.

  • Soil Sampling for Precision Management of Crop Production (B 1208)

    While site-specific soil sampling can improve field management, it must be accompanied by the conscientious collection and analysis of data. The new technologies that have elevated precision agriculture into the forefront of farm management cannot offset poor data collection and soil-testing techniques. Inaccurate data on soil properties will inevitably lead to improper management decisions.

    This bulletin addresses three primary factors that can affect the precision management of soil fertility: 1) collecting proper soil-sample cores and the consequences of improper soil sampling, 2) breaking the field into smaller management areas, and 3) differences in test results and recommended application rates between soil-test laboratories. A step-by-step procedure is then presented on how to use variabl e yield goals to develop field maps showing variable application rates o f fertilizers and lime. Published on Mar 30, 2016.

  • Success with Cover Crops (EB 102)

    This publication discusses the benefits of planting cover crops, how to select an appropriate cover crop to meet your needs, and includes information about using cover crops successfully. Published on Apr 30, 2017.
