It’s a record of global significance for the agricultural industry.

The 2016 World Ag Expo, the world's largest outdoor farm exposition held Feb. 9-11 in Tulare, Calif., set an all-time attendance record of 106,349 people under sunny skies and warm temperatures.

Last year, World Ag Expo hosted 102,867 attendees.

Add to this year's attendance number the 1,500 exhibitor companies plus the army of about 1,400 volunteers which - combined - likely pushed total 2016 attendance to about 110,000 people.

The large crowds during the three-day show saw and learned about the latest and greatest innovations in the business of agriculture aimed at increasing farming productivity.
