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 #54

I have more information about driving at Purdue. Employees, student employees, student drivers, and volunteers should already have completed and submitted forms RM01 and the USA General Release form or self evaluate. If you drive on University business in a University vehicle or your personal vehicle you need to meet “Minimum Driver Qualifications.” Make sure your employees comply too. See the web site for details. .http://www.purdue.edu/risk_mgmt/Vehicle_Use_Info/Welcome.html . . From the site you can click to; View the Policy Check the MVR Grading Grid for Minimum Driver Qualifications, and Find the USA General Release Form. Think, plan, and work safely at ACRE. Jim
