PLENTY TO DO: Visitors will be able to see over 4,000 product lines exhibited by 640 exhibitors at this year’s Farm Science Review.

While it may only be April, organizers are busy pulling together the Farm Science Review, one of the nation’s premier agricultural trade and education shows. The event will be at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London Sept. 19-21.

New for this year’s 55th event, visitors will be able to “Map Your Show” on a new mobile app in preparation for the three-day event. The app will be available in app stores beginning in July. Visitors will be able to browse the interactive map and search for specific exhibitors or product categories.

Sponsored by Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, the Farm Science Review offers landowners, farmers and conservationists the opportunity to learn about the latest agricultural innovations in research.

Tickets are $7 and will sell online at fsr.osu.edu. They will also be available at county Extension offices and participating local agribusinesses beginning in July. Tickets can be purchased at the gate for $10 and children ages 5 and under are free.

“Visitors will be able to see over 4,000 product lines exhibited by 640 exhibitors,” says Nick Zachrich, Farm Science Review manager. More than 120,000 usually attend the event.

Educational presentations, demonstrations and displays are ongoing throughout the three days, Zachrich says. Research tours on water quality, nutrient management and other topics in partnership with Ohio State and Beck's will be available.

Visitors seeking credits for certified crop adviser or pesticide application recertification should check the event schedule or watch for press releases in August and September, Zachrich says.

Shuttle wagons will be leaving from the west end of the show site throughout the day to transport visitors to the Gwynne Conservation Area, where there will be a focus on wildlife, woodland and aquatics educational opportunities, as well as a streambank protection installation.

Shuttle wagons will also take visitors to a variety of field demonstrations featuring different agronomic operations. Demonstrations include drainage installation, unmanned aerial vehicles and cornstalk baling, says Zachrich.

Starting in late July, the digital directory for the Farm Science Review can be found on the website, says Zachrich. The digital directory is the online version of the app.
