ATHENS — The annual Georgia Ag Forecast seminar series, to be held in six locations throughout Georgia, will present information on what to expect in 2016 for the state’s agricultural industry.
Hosted by the University of Georgia College of Agricultural & Environmental Sciences, the seminar will be held in Carrollton on Jan. 21; Cleveland, Jan. 22; Bainbridge, Jan. 25; Tifton, Jan. 26; Alma, Jan. 27; and Macon, Jan.29.
At each seminar, UGA faculty will give an overview of the upcoming season’s predictions. This year’s special interest topic involves sales tax distribution patterns and the effects of recent legislative tax changes, such as the Georgia Agriculture Tax Exemption (GATE) and the Title Ad Valorem Tax (TAVT) on Georgia counties.
The seminar series is made possible through the support of the Georgia Farm Bureau Land Grant University Lecture Series Endowment. Support is also given by the Georgia Department of Agriculture and the Georgia Agribusiness Council.
