Research, innovation and education — you’ll hear these three words repeated time and again when describing what a visitor will find at the Sunbelt Ag Expo Field Day.
Scheduled for Tuesday, July 10 at Spence Field in Moultrie, Ga., — site of the Sunbelt Expo — Field Day is an annual preview for the big show held in October and it’s an opportunity for farmers to see future trends in agriculture.
Field Day focuses on seed varieties, chemical applications, irrigation technology and precision ag technology.
This year 25 companies, as well as university researchers, will participate with 120 to 130 plots focusing on traditional row crop varieties. These will include 35 varieties each of corn and soybeans, 50 for cotton and 21 for peanuts and 1 plot highlighting Pearl Millet as an alternative crop.
Research is what the Sunbelt Ag Expo was built on and there is no shortage of it in the fields this year.
Trams depart starting at 8:30 and a complimentary lunch is served at 12:15.
