Farm Science Review emphasizes the best agricultural research, resources, information and access for farmers. The three-day farm trade show annually draws more than 130,000 farmers, growers, producers and agricultural enthusiasts from across the U.S. and Canada.
Following the theme, “Sharp Ideas, Sharp Equipment and Sharp Results,” some of the issues participants can expect to learn more about include the agriculture economy, grain markets, land values and cash rents.
The Review will also offer information on water quality and how producers and growers can comply with new Ohio laws in that area..
Sponsored by Ohio State’s College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, the Review features educational workshops, presentations, demonstrations and educational opportunities delivered by experts from OSU Extension and the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center, which are the outreach and research arms, respectively, of the college.
Participants can peruse 4,000 product lines from 620 commercial exhibitors and capitalize on educational opportunities from Ohio State and Purdue specialists.
Other Review highlights:
•Plot demonstrations by members of the OSU Extension Agronomic Crops Team on corn, soybean, cover crops and bio-energy crops in plots established at the eastern edge of the Review exhibit area. The plots are just outside Gate C near the main entrance gate.
•Daily field demonstrations in the fields north of Interstate 70.
•A comprehensive demonstration of an unmanned aerial system for real-time crop surveillance. Used as another tool in the farmer’s precision agriculture toolbox, the drones can be used to provide useful local site-specific data including crop scouting and geo-referencing. This allows growers to monitor pesticides dispersion and fertilizer usage and to monitor crop health parameters including soil moisture.
Advance tickets for the Farm Science Review tickets are $7 at all OSU Extension county offices, many local agribusinesses and online starting in July. Tickets are $10 at the gate. Children 5 and younger are admitted free.
Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 22-23 and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.Sept. 24.
