MARK YOUR CALENDARS: The outdoor agricultural education and industry trade show is Sept. 18-20, and is designed to provide visitors with advice they can use to improve farm operations, large or small.

Planning for the 56th annual Farm Science Review started immediately after the last event closed, and this year’s review has some new offerings. The exhibit area is now 20 acres larger, and improvements have been made so visitors can better access parking as well as the exhibits and other offerings at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London. Farm Science Review is sponsored by the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) at Ohio State University.

“We think these improvements will make a big difference to visitors,” says Nick Zachrich, Farm Science Review manager. “With close to 130,000 people coming to the show every year, we want to make it as safe and as easy as possible to enter and exit.”

The outdoor agricultural education and industry trade show is Sept. 18-20, and is designed to provide visitors with advice they can use to improve farm operations, large or small.

One improvement to the Farm Science Review involves relocating the “Ride and Drives,” where attendees can test drive farm equipment and vehicles from participating exhibitors. The new location puts these immediately inside the east gates near the OSU’s Extension Agronomic Crops Team display and the antique tractor clubs. Visitors to the annual event are able to peruse 4,000 product lines and over 700 commercial and educational exhibits as well as engage in workshops, presentations and demonstrations delivered by CFAES experts.

“Anyone involved in agriculture, whether you have a backyard garden to feed your family or thousands of acres, will find products, services and knowledge from exhibitors and CFAES experts to improve your operation,” Zachrich says.

Educators, specialists and faculty from CFAES will provide research-based information on issues from pest management to water quality. Field demonstrations will feature the most current technology and agricultural techniques.

Tickets to the event can be purchased beginning in July. The Farm Science Review mobile app and digital directory of exhibitors will also be available at that time.

Tickets are $7 online, at OSU Extension county offices and participating agribusinesses, and $10 at the gate. Children ages 5 and under get in free. Details on event hours, buying tickets online and more are available at fsr.osu.edu.
