John Deere to Join 600 Exhibitors at 2013 Farm Science Review
The Molly Caren Agricultural Center (MCAC) near London, Ohio, will host the 51st annual Farm Science Review September 17-19, where 600 exhibitors will display the latest in agriculture production through demonstrations, educational programs and more.
The show, which is expected to draw more than 140,000 visitors from the United States and Canada, dedicates 80 acres of land for an exhibit area where visitors and exhibitors experience all aspects of agriculture production through static displays. However, visitors also have an opportunity to step out into the 600-acre portion of land that is dedicated to field demonstrations such as corn and soybean combines, tillage, nutrient and lime applications, and drainage installations.
Chuck Gamble, who manages the Review, said in a recent AgriNews article, “Companies know they’ll have a nice crowd of receptive farmers and producers interested in their products or services, which is a positive reflection on the show because of the large attendance we typically draw.”
An additional 67-acre piece of land, known as the Gwynne Conservation Area (GCA,) will serve as a demonstration and education area for agriculture and natural resources management practices. Tickets for the event can be purchased for $7.00 in advance from most Ohio agribusinesses and all county offices of Ohio State University Extension, or $10.00 at the gate.
Those visiting the 2013 Farm Science Review will have an opportunity to get an up-close look at agricultural equipment in action, as well as a chance to learn about agricultural production best practices through educational programs and displays offered by more than 600 exhibitors.
