Crops are on track at Progress City for the 2015 Farm Progress Show. This year marks the 62nd year for the Farm Progress Show.
The corn was in the ground by April 15, missing the wet spring that most farmers are battling right now. "The corn is coming up and is looking good," said Matt Jungman, Director of Events for Penton Farm Progress.
Wheat growing on the east side of the show grounds is coming along nicely as well.
"Two of the parking lot areas were reseeded into alfalfa. Those are looking good and should get 4 cuttings off before the show," said Jungman.
Looking for new equipment? We have compiled into one spot, more than 200 new products featured at the big farm shows just for you.
Demonstration fields total 383 planted acres for farmers to take in during the 3 days. The show is sold out with about 125 exhibitors on the wait list.
This year's host farmers are David Brix family, Colby Schwarze, Bill Vorhees and Marc Padrutt.
