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 #16

You know that driving safely on the ACRE is a recurring theme of mine. It will also be a recurring theme in the “ACRE Safety Thoughts” too. Driving carefully starts with reducing speed up and down the main lane, especially with Beck building activities added to our farm. Driving carefully around the building area and especially by the Research Building near the stop sign is a key area too. Being mindful of others is critical. Please remind staff at the beginning of this field research season to drive carefully at ACRE. Thanks Jim
