The Sunbelt Ag Expo has announced they will be showcasing their field research in a new format that will actually span over a two-week period. The 2024 Field Research Days are scheduled for July 10-24, and farmers are invited to stop by at their convenience during this two-week period. During the self-guided driving tour of the Darrell Williams Research Farm located at the Expo show site at Spence Field in Moultrie, Ga., you will be able to learn about the newest technologies available to use on your operations. 

“We are grateful to continue working with university and corporate researchers on the Darrell Williams Research Farm, where we conduct cotton, peanut, corn, and forage research,” says Chip Blalock, Sunbelt Ag Expo Executive Director. “The ultimate goal in all of the research is to improve the farmer’s bottom line and to do it using the most environmentally and technologically sound practices.” 


“Every year, our mission is to provide a place where research can be done to benefit all row crop and forage farmers. We enjoy working with the researchers and helping them disseminate the information to the farmers,” says Cody Mitchell, Sunbelt Ag Expo Farm Manager. “Our team works all year to have the best-looking farm around. We want the Expo farm to showcase what a farm should look like.” 

Visitors should arrive thru Gate 2 July 10-24 anytime between 8:00 am and dark for the tour. Directional signs will lead visitors to the tour path. At the first stop, you will have the opportunity to pick-up a map as well as information about each plot. Plus, pre-recorded segments featuring university researchers and company vendors will be available for viewing while driving through the fields or at a later time on Sunbelt’s YouTube channel. Be sure to have a smartphone or tablet with you to view the research videos during the tour.
