Moultrie -- The 2007 Sunbelt Expo in Moultrie is three months away, but visitors today were treated to a sneak preview that included a look at new farming innovations and expert advice from ag-experts.
USDA agricultural engineer Manuel Hall was on hand to discuss bio-diesel advantages offered from the peanut crop.
"This is something that's actually going on right now. There are different forms of bio-diesel. I guess you know that bio-diesel is made form different products such as chicken grease. Peanut oil is just another aspect that we're going to be doing some research on," says Hall.
Trams carried Field Day visitors through rows of cotton, corn, peanuts, and soybeans - crops to the average eye, but fields of new technologies in they eyes of the farm industry.
Darrell Williams has managed the Sunbelt Expo Research Farm for 20 years. He says, "It's a really good opportunity for local farmers to come out and they can talk one-on-one with the research people. They can get the information directly from them."
With technology and innovation at the forefront of the agricultural industry, visitors to the Sunbelt Expo Field Day learn firsthand about new crop varieties and the importance of coping with drought.
With 2007 officially one of the worst growing seasons in Georgia history, Executive Director Chip Blalock believes this years exposition will offer farmers vital information and technologies, while sharing a global reach.
" It's a great time for all the people in agriculture to come together and share ideas. So we can all do a better job of producing the most abundant, most economical, safest food, fiber, and shelter in the world," says Blalock.
And while the Field Day event offered visitors 600-acres of the foremost agricultural advancements, it's just a small portion of what you will see beginning October 16.
The 2007 Sunbelt Agricultural Expo will be held October 16-18 at Spence Field. For more information on this event, click on the link below.
