October 19-21, Moultrie, Ga.

The Sunbelt Ag Expo is an agricultural-based trade show held at Spence Field in Moultrie, Ga. This year’s show is October 19-21. The annual event has more than 1,200 exhibitors showcasing the latest in farming technology.

The expo’s unique site has a 100-acre exhibit area adjoining a 600-acre working research farm. In the exhibit area, which includes both outdoor and indoor exhibits, visitors will find every imaginable product or service a farm could ever need. In addition to the static exhibits, visitors can attend educational, entertaining seminars and demonstrations offered in a variety of specialized areas. Visitors can ride a tram from the exhibit area to the fields, where cotton, peanuts, corn, soybeans and hay are being harvested. These harvesting demonstrations, as well as tillage demonstrations, equipment driving ranges, irrigation technology and precision ag demonstrations, all provide opportunities to see and compare a wide range of equipment in an actual working setting. Company representatives and specialists are in the fields to answer visitor questions.
