Sunbelt Ag Expo stands out from other farm shows across the country because of its 530-acre Research Farm. Each year in late March or early April, when the days get longer and the weather gets warmer, the Expo farm crew begins planting plots representing crops grown in the southeast. Two weeks ago, planting began for this year. 

Over the next couple of months, a large amount of research plots will be planted to test seed varieties, fertilizers and chemicals, soil moisture levels, irrigation usage, and much more. University of Georgia researchers, along with company researchers and agronomists, can be found on the farm during the season once these trials have started and as samples are collected throughout the growing season. The Sunbelt Ag Expo Field Day, held each July, is the highlight of the year as farmers from each region visit the farm to learn about the newest technology being tested and how they can plan to incorporate it into their own operation.
