Ohio State’s Farm Science Review, which turns 60 this year, plans to highlight its decades of providing valuable information to farmers and producers, while focusing on continuing to educate for the future. The 60th FSR will focus on “Embracing Time and Change.”
More than 100,000 people are expected to attend the event, which will feature more than 100 educational sessions including “Ask the Expert” talks, the most comprehensive field crop demonstrations in the United States, 600 exhibits, a career exploration fair, and immersive virtual reality videos of agricultural activities.
Visitors will also be able to see farming equipment from the 1960s to highlight all the advances that are available in farming today, said Nick Zachrich, FSR manager.
Across the 100-acre exhibit area, attendees will also see new products and exhibitors, which will range in topics of interest including livestock, electric tractors, and other tractor improvements, in addition to the educational sessions and displays from OSU Extension, Zachrich said.
FSR hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 20–21 and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 22. Presale tickets are $10 online at county offices of OSU Extension and at participating agribusinesses, or they’re $15 at the gate. Children ages 5 and under are admitted free.
