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 #17
Sunburn and exposure to harmful UV radiation are potential outdoor problems. You and your employees can reduce this risk when working outdoors at the ACRE. Protection can include sunscreen lotion, wide brim hats, and long sleeve shirts. Think, plan, and work safely at ACRE. Jim
