ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Farmers got a preview of some of the latest technology they can expect to see during this years Sunbelt Ag Expo.

More than 300 farmers got a firsthand look at seed varieties, chemicals, irrigation and precision agriculture at the Sunbelt Ag Expo field day.

They toured 130 plots of row crops where these techniques were put into action. This is a big economic booster for Southwest Georgia. The Sunbelt Ag Expo alone brings 16 million dollars to the region.

"The other shows that we have through out the year like field day, the car show and the arts and craft shows double that. So we are easily looking at $35 million to $40 million in economic impact," said Executive Director, Chip Blaylock.

That money benefits a 20 county region around Moultrie. The Sunbelt Ag Expo is scheduled to be held on October 14th through the 16th.
