The Sunbelt Expo Field Day is scheduled for Thursday, July 10, 2014, beginning at 7:15 am Eastern Time. 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.
