“Research, innovation and education” – three words that describe what farmers will find at the Sunbelt Ag Expo Field Day. The annual ½ day educational event will be held July 14 in Moultrie, GA and is free and open to those involved in agriculture and agribusiness.
Touring the Darrell Williams Research Farm on covered trams, farmers and agribusiness men can see plots which showcase the latest cutting edge research in the growing stages. Industry representatives and university researchers will give up-to-date information on topics such as new seed varieties, irrigation, crop protection, soil fertility, forages and precision agriculture. Field Day is also the opportunity to get a first hand look at what you will see harvested at the 39th Annual Sunbelt Expo, October 18th – 20th.
The Expo’s industry and university partners conduct agronomic research that address the real challenges that farmers face through the planting, growing and harvesting season. Field Day research is done in collaboration with farmers, industry and universities in order to determine the best methods economically, environmentally and socially to address farming challenges.
In addition to the field tours there will be static exhibits from various equipment manufacturers and allied industry partners. Registration and static exhibits open at 7:15 a.m. Each registrant is entered to win some great prizes and will receive 1 complimentary Expo hat. See below for full schedule of events.
A complete informational guide will be mailed to Southeast Farm Press readers with their June 15 issue. You can download a copy from our website for mobile reading or contact our office for a hard copy to be mailed to you. Copies will also be available at the Field Day Registration.
