Farm Science Review 2019 offers the latest in farm technology and products.
The three-day agricultural trade show offers educational talks and opportunities to speak one-on-one with experts from The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES), which sponsors the annual event at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center near London.
Now in its 57th year, the event offers the most relevant and up-to-date information to farmers on topics ranging from crop diseases to soil health. Farmers can learn how to reduce input costs and increase their efficiency at a time when both are particularly crucial.
In one location, growers can visit with many experts and see the newest innovations on the market. The event draws more than 100,000 people throughout three days. It features 4,000 product lines and over 700 commercial and educational exhibits, as well as workshops and presentations delivered by CFAES experts.
Special guest Jolene Brown will speak Sept. 18 at 1 p.m. and Sept. 19 at 10 a.m. She addresses tough farm issues with grace and humor and is frequently hired to address farmers on a variety of topics, including stress and mental health.
