WELCOME TO SHOW
IF YOU ARE looking for the latest, most
cutting edge agricultural technology, the
Sunbelt Ag Expo is the place for you.
We welcome our faithful visitors and
exhibitors to the 41st annual edition of
North America’s Premier Farm Show®,
the Sunbelt Ag Expo!
As we celebrate our 41 years of service to
agriculture, we salute over 1,200 exhibitors that
encompass 100 acres of exhibit space and represent
over 4,000 different product lines. These exhibitors
are showcasing the latest technology to help make life
better on the farm.
The Expo’s 600-acre Darrell Williams Research Farm
is a world-renowned site for agricultural scientists from
universities and corporate America to test innovations,
and is a proving ground for many advances in ag
technology. It’s also the location of our daily harvesting
and tillage demonstrations, where manufacturers
will operate recently released equipment for cotton,
peanuts, and hay. The ;elds are also the location for the
John Deere Gator and compact tractor test tracks and
other driving ranges.
In the static exhibit area there are over 300
interactive educational displays and demonstrations.
These displays and activities showcase the many ways
our exhibitors, agricultural researchers, and educators
are helping farmers to continue to produce the safest,
most economical, and abundant supply of food, ;ber, and
shelter in the world.
On Tuesday, we will cut the ribbon on the Spotlight
