More than 500 farmers and others braved south Georgia temperatures hovering around the 100-degree mark for the recent Sunbelt Ag Expo Field Day held in Moultrie, Goergia. The annual event offers participants a preview of the Sunbelt Agricultural Exposition set for October 19-21, 2004 and an opportunity to visit one-on-one with university researchers and representatives from leading agricultural companies. Extension specialists from the University of Georgia cotton and peanut teams gave updates on current crop conditions and their latest research efforts at the Sunbelt Expo site. "Statewide, USDA reports that we have 1,33 million acres of cotton in Georgia this year," says Steve M. Brown, University of Georgia Extension cotton specialist.
