Two Wisconsin students travelled to Tifton to take part in the first ever Gold Emblem Student Exchange Program.
Over the course of a week, the students will travel to different farms across the area to learn about Georgia agriculture.
During the week, the group will learn about how native fruits and vegetables are processed, how the peanut crops are managed, as well as how other local farms operate.
Next week, two Tifton students will travel to Wisconsin to learn about their agriculture industry.
Young Farm Teacher Carl Nichols says this program is great because it 'gives our students a chance to go and see their industry and bring back information from them, as well as, their students come down here to us and will carry information from South Georgia back up to Denmark to share our information with their AG programs up there.'
