Commodity Teams

Commodity websites

Our teams made up of research scientists and extension specialists work together to provide the latest technology and information for efficient, profitable production of some of Georgia's most valuable commodities.


Cross-commodity programs

Many of our research and extension faculty work in multi-disciplinary teams and roles that affect more than one specific commodity or research area. There are many resources available that can be applied across disciplines and production areas.
