The Sunbelt Ag Expo — “North’s America’s Premier Farm Show” — consists of a 600-acre research farm, 100-acre exhibit area and 40 acres of parking.

Altogether, that’s a lot of ground to cover, and now there’s an app to help you take it all in. 

“Know on the Go” is the official mobile app for the 2011 Sunbelt Ag Expo, to be held Oct. 18-20 at Spence Field in Moultrie, Ga.

The Sunbelt Expo is a must-attend event for anyone in agriculture, featuring more than 1,100 exhibitors, a working farm, equipment demonstrations and driving ranges, and various educational opportunities.

“Know on the Go,” provided for the first time by Farm Press Publications and Penton Media Inc., will allow those attending the Sunbelt Expo this year to use their iPhone, IPod Touch, iPad, Blackberry or Android to receive up-to-the-minute news alerts and other breaking information during the three-day show.

“The Sunbelt Expo: Know on the Go mobile app was produced by Penton Custom Media and has been used at some of the largest trade shows in the nation,” says Greg Frey, vice-president at Penton Media and publisher of Farm Press.

“We believe this new technology will greatly enhance participants’ experience at this year’s Sunbelt Ag Expo.”

Farm Press, a member of the Agricultural Group at Penton Media, publishes Southeast Farm Press, Delta Farm Press, Southwest Farm Press and Western Farm Press. Southeast Farm Press is an official sponsor of the Sunbelt Agricultural Exposition and publishes the official show program and the Sunbelt Expo Field Day Guide.
