Auburn University's newest president made a stop in Henry County yesterday.
He visited a couple of Wiregrass Centers with ties to the university.
Doctor Jay Gogue dropped by the Abbeville and Headland extension centers to talk with business leaders about the future of agriculture.
The goal is to meet the demands of the marketplace in agriculture by making food production more efficient.
“Research looks at new varieties, it looks at a whole host of issues in agriculture to try to find those little segments that best fit what our growers in this region can do to serve a broader market,” says Gogue.
And Dr. Gogue plans to personally speak to staff at every extension office in all of Alabama’s 67 counties.
