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 #53

If you drive a University vehicle the new Purdue Vehicle Use policy will affect you. See this web site for details; http://www.purdue.edu/risk_mgmt/Vehicle_Use_Info/Welcome.html A Motor Vehicle Record Check may be required or self evaluation. Student compliance is required. College of Ag faculty and staff compliance is required. If you drive your personal vehicle for work purposes you must comply with the policy too. I can’t fully explain all of the policy here, so check it out on the web. Think, plan, train, and work safely at ACRE. Jim
