An agriculture innovation partnership coming soon to Perry, Georgia

The University of Georgia’s College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences (CAES) and Grand Farm are coming together to build the University of Georgia Grand Farm, a working innovation farm with plans to deploy the first field projects in 2025.

CAES and Grand Farm, a leading innovator in agricultural technology, are creating a robust regional agricultural innovation ecosystem. The roots of this partnership go back five years when University System of Georgia Chancellor Sonny Perdue helped inaugurate the Grand Farm during its launch ceremony in North Dakota while serving as U.S. secretary of agriculture.

UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences

In the lab and in the field, UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences faculty and staff are advancing agricultural and environmental sciences across Georgia and beyond. Our students in Athens, Griffin and Tifton learn firsthand from researchers who are pioneering new methods, making discoveries and using cutting-edge technology to ensure the future of agriculture and the environment for generations to come.

Grand Farm

Grand Farm was created to solve the biggest problems facing agriculture. Starting as the result of a challenge from the community, the Fargo-based initiative has transformed to be a global leader in ag tech innovation. Today, Grand Farm is a global network of growers, corporations, startups, educators, researchers, investors and government collaborating on cutting-edge autonomous and advanced agriculture technology innovations.

The UGA Grand Farm will serve as a hub for research, education and sustainable agriculture practices. By harnessing the power of precision agriculture, robotics and data analytics, CAES researchers will increase productivity, conserve resources and ensure food security for future generations.
