SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — Two Georgia colleges are teaming up to help farmers and businesses capitalize on growing export markets. The University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and the Georgia Southern University Division of Continuing Education plan to host the 2013 International Agribusiness Conference and Expo in Savannah on Sept. 25 and 26. The inaugural edition of the event aims to give participants information on what markets are open to their products, how to export their goods and how exporting can affect their profits. Agricultural products are among Georgia's top exports. The state exported $37.9 billion worth of goods last year. About 39 percent of the shipments exported through the port of Savannah are agricultural products.
