Farm Science Review seeking stories from first 50 years
As the Farm Science Review looks forward to its 50th farm show September 18–20, show organizers want to get in contact with individuals who were in attendance at the early Reviews dating back as far as 1963 when it was held at Ohio State’s Don Scott field in Columbus.
“Progress is the very thing that the Farm Science Review is about, and we want to learn about the ways the Review has brought innovation and technology to farmers over the last 50 years,” said Chuck Gamble, manager of the Farm Science Review. “We can tell stories about the threeday span of the Review, but the real impact is what happens after the Review inspires adoption of new technology or methods on the farm.”
This year’s Farm Science Review will be held Sept. 18–20 at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London, Ohio. Tickets are available for sale at local agribusinesses and any OSU Extension office for $5 in advance, or $8 at the gate. Children 5 and under are free. For more information, go to fsr.osu.edu.
Farm Science Review is sponsored by the College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences, Ohio State University Extension, and the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center. It attracts more than 140,000 visitors from all over the country and Canada, who come for three days to peruse 4,000 product lines from 600 commercial exhibitors, and learn the latest in agricultural research, conservation, family and nutrition, and gardening and landscape.
