During the holiday season a good gift is safety. ACRE safety is year-round. The best gift you can give your family, your co-workers, and yourself any holiday season is an awareness of safety all year long. Be aware of hazards and don’t put yourself or others at risk of a preventable injury. Make safety a culture. Think, plan, and work safely at ACRE. Jim
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.
