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 #28

When the corn gets tall enough that visibility at field corners is reduced, it is critical to slow down or stop as needed at field intersections with low visibility. Driving habits must be altered during the summer growing season. Please remind all drivers of this hazard and the need to adjust driving procedures. Think, plan, and work safely at ACRE. Jim
