There are a lot of things that let me know that summertime is back; barbecues, spending time at the pool with the kids and the smell of gardenias. But the one tell-tale is seeing stalks of corn emerge from everyone's vegetable garden.
The practices that can help us save energy in our homes - like sealing leaks, insulating and updating cooling systems and replacing light bulbs - are also being used to make Georgia's prolific poultry industry more efficient, one chicken house at a time.
There seems to always be something brewing with international trade. The United States and India have had a long-standing disagreement about India's policies on U.S. exports, especially agricultural products.
Hopefully more trade negotiations and explorations will open significant doors for Georgia agriculture and other industries. This could only mean good things for our area with poultry being a No. 1 export from the area to the rest of the country and world.
In the last Agbiz article, I talked about how the deepening of the port of Savannah would improve our ability to move products grown and made in the United States, specifically the poultry products produced in North Georgia.
