I sure wish I was in Georgia where the sun is shining on the Sunbelt Ag Expo. The winner of the Swisher Sweets/Sunbelt Expo Southeastern Farmer of the Year was announced today.

He’s Robert Dasher of G&R Farms in Glennville, GA. He’s a pioneer in the Vidalia sweet onion industry.

Dasher was announced as winner during the Willie B. Withers Luncheon at the 2010 Sunbelt Ag Expo farm show in Moultrie, Ga. The award honors excellence in agricultural production and management and leadership in community and farm organizations. The award also recognizes family contributions in producing safe and abundant supplies of food, fiber and shelter for U.S. consumers.
