Farm Science Review Breaks New Ground

Ohio’s premier agricultural event, Farm Science Review (FSR), will take place September 17-19 at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London, Ohio.

FSR attracts more than 130,000 farmers, growers and producers from the U.S. and Canada who come to learn about the latest in agricultural research, products and services and to experience educational exhibits, presentations and demonstrations relating to natural-resource management and the crop and livestock industries. 

Marking its 51st year, this year’s theme “Break New Ground” will showcase the latest technology, equipment and innovations in the agriculture industry today.

Experts from The Ohio State University will discuss topics ranging from farming techniques to improving water and soil quality and combating invasive species.

According to the FSR website, this year’s three-day event will also feature:
  • Daily harvesting, strip-tilling, global positioning, manure and tillage demonstrations
  • Information about farm health and safety, farm management programs, financial and economical information, the environment and human and community development
  • Antique farm equipment
Three individuals will also be inducted to the FSR Hall of Fame, including Don Breece, past assistant director of the Agriculture and Natural Resources program at The Ohio State University Extension, the late Dan Kush, an advocate and friend of the Gwynne Conservation Area and Marti Smith, co-owner of American Small Farm. These three individuals have been selected for induction in recognition of their contributions to the success of the Farm Science Review.
