Chip Blalock, Executive Director of the Sunbelt Ag Expo, said he is pleased with the crowd turnout.

“We’re glad to be rolling. The famers are coming in. Seeing the cotton, peanuts, corn, Grain sorghum, and Bermuda Grass. Learning the latest and greatest in the seed varieties, crop protection, soil fertility, irrigation, and precision ag throughout the research plots,” said Blalock.
