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 #20
Agriculture presents many weather and time sensitive procedures and tasks. Even though you are feeling stressed and want to get a lot done before a rain starts, take a deep breath, rethink the steps of your tasks, and BE SAFE. Jim
