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 # 36

When harvest time arrives in the fall, wheat planting time is here as well. That means lots of activity in fields, on roads, and around buildings. One of my biggest concerns is safe driving at ACRE. Please drive cautiously and pay attention at the corners and along field edges. Be especially careful around the building area. Speed on the main entrance lane should be reduced with the extra traffic added by Beck building activities. Plan, think, and work safely at ACRE. Jim
