Welcome to the ACRE
The Agronomy Center for Research and Education, ACRE, is an outdoor laboratory for Purdue Agriculture. Used for field research and hands-on teaching, the 1,135 acre farm is a busy place with faculty, staff, student, and visitor activity. I am Jim Beaty. I have been Superintendent of the ACRE since 1986. With my four full time staff members, part time help, and student employees we are responsible for operating the research farm. About 53 university researchers conduct projects here at the ACRE. I plan to write about our research, visitors, and farm safety thoughts.

ACRE Safety Thought #01
A Safety Thought for ACRE Researchers. Protect yourself, your employees, and your students while working. Think about and prepare a “Project Specific Safety Plan” for your work at the ACRE. Do you have special hazards that should be addressed? Like tractor operation, moving PTO shafts, powered moving belts or pulleys, stationary threshers, etc. Please identify hazards and train your people to work safely. Thanks, Jim Beaty (First published Dec 12, 2008 in the weekly Purdue Agronomy Newsletter)
