Being the Spotlight state provides us with the chance to showcase our state's #1 industry on an international stage.
Get educated at the Sunbelt Ag Expo! Seminars and Presentations that Inform, Educate and Entertain take place each day of the show. With a variety of interactive exhibits and activities, the Expo also provides a fun and enjoyable educational experience.
The Sunbelt Expo proudly showcases the latest technology from the world’s greatest agricultural companies. Static exhibits, a working farm, equipment demos, driving ranges and educational seminars combine to provide a one-stop marketplace for anyone involved in agriculture.
Throughout its 36 year history, The Sunbelt Ag Expo has been at the forefront of showcasing the future of agriculture.
From the first four and six row cotton picker demonstrations and self propelled peanut combines to the introduction of the cotton industry’s first commercially available picker equipped with a built-in on board module builder, to breakthrough research on new crop varieties, the Sunbelt Expo has always been the place for visitors to see the newest in agriculture.
“The Sunbelt Expo embraces change, it’s just amazing to look at how far we’ve come and where we will be going,” said Expo Executive Director Chip Blalock. “We are constantly looking at new technologies and new products and services and their representation at the show is an asset to our visitors.”
The 2014 Sunbelt Expo will take place October 14-16 in Moultrie, Georgia
The event attracts upwards of 100,000 visitors from all over the country. Visitors come for three days to peruse 4,000 product lines from 1200 commercial exhibitors, and capitalize on educational opportunities from university and college research specialists.
The Sunbelt Expo Field Day is scheduled for Thursday, July 10, 2014, beginning at 7:15 am. Attendees will not only have a chance to learn from the region’s top agricultural consultants and specialists to many of the pertinent areas of agriculture, but they will be able to participate in hands-on demonstrations.
We know you are busy and can’t spend an entire day away from the farm so we have streamlined the activities and field tours: Registration begins at 7:15 a.m., followed by a complimentary biscuit breakfast, exhibit viewing and welcome from Georgia Department of Agriculture and Georgia Farm Bureau. You’ll have a chance to win some great door prizes as well as receive a free Expo cap. The trams will depart for the field tour at 8:00am sharp. The tours will conclude by 12 noon with a BBQ lunch provided by Ameris Bank. Field Day is free and open to those involved in agriculture and agribusiness.
Visitors can see new demonstrations, examine research trial results and speak with company representatives and university researchers to get up-to-date recommendations on topics like new seed varieties, irrigation, crop protection, precision agriculture, soil fertility and organic farming. It’s an opportunity to preview what you will see at the 37th annual show October 14-16, 2014.
Research presented at our Field Day is almost totally driven by those we serve. Our University researchers and company representatives gather information about problems farmers are facing and work to solve those. Research is done in collaboration with farmers, industry, government and other universities in order to determine the best approach – economically, environmentally and socially – for the challenges that confront Southeast farmers. Anyone attending this field day – owner, operator or land steward — will take away useful information on a variety of topics and subject matter they can apply to their agriculture or agribusiness operation.
