Corn is an economically important crop in Georgia, with production occupying the third-greatest row crop acreage in the state behind cotton and peanuts. Field corn grown in Georgia primarily contributes to regional poultry, dairy and ethanol industries. In addition to economic value, corn is often important to crop rotations with cotton, peanuts, soybeans and horticultural crops.
This site provides current management recommendations via the Georgia Corn Production Guide and supplementary resources, as well as decision making tools including interactive budgets, crop comparison tools and official variety testing reports.
