Farmers and others can discover new technologies and innovations at this year’s Farm Science Review, set for Sept. 16-18 at Ohio State’s Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London, Ohio.
The annual event, now in its 52nd year, will feature the latest technological advances in farming and will share the latest research on improving a farm’s bottom line, said Chuck Gamble, manager of the show, which is sponsored by Ohio State’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences. OARDC is the college’s research arm.
“When you talk about technology and innovation, that’s what farmers are looking for and what we have to offer,” he said. “For example, the Review was the first farm show to demonstrate an unmanned aerial vehicle and will offer even more demonstrations on how farmers can use this technology to advance their farm operations.
“We’ll offer information on new markets, such as growing hops to locally source Ohio’s booming microbrewing industry. Farmers can also learn new ways to use technology to market their business to consumers, including using mobile apps.”
