It’s available by download in the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store by searching for “FSR 2017,” or at the Farm Science Review website.

Tickets are $7 and are available online. They are available at county Extension offices and participating local agribusinesses. Tickets can be purchased at the gate for $10 and children ages 5 and under are free.

Educational presentations, demonstrations and displays are ongoing throughout the three days. Research tours on water quality, nutrient management and other topics in partnership with Ohio State and Beck’s Hybrids will be available.
