Ohio State, Purdue: Partners Again At Farm Science Review

Purdue University will once again partner with Ohio State University to help present educational programing and exhibits at the 2013 Farm Science Review.

The Review runs September 17-19 at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London, OH. This year marks the 51st time Ohio State’s College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences will offer the farm trade show, which merges agricultural education, science and technology through presenters, exhibitors, vendors and field demonstrations.

“Farm Science Review is a premier event and a great way to showcase the partnerships between Purdue and Ohio State, which extend well beyond the event,” said Jay Akridge, Glenn W. Sample Dean of Purdue Agriculture, which will be a partner for the ninth consecutive year. “We’re proud to be part of the mission of the Review, which brings together education and technology in agriculture to help ensure a successful future for this industry.”

More than 130,000 visitors from the U.S. and Canada attend the show each year to learn about advances in agricultural research, conservation, family and nutrition, landscape and gardening. Nearly 4,000 product lines will be on display by 600 vendors.

Each day, Review attendees can participate in a variety of harvest, tillage, global positioning and manure demonstrations. Cooperative Extension Service educators and other agricultural experts from both universities will present daily on a variety of agricultural topics.

Also available will be an array of exhibits showcasing Purdue Extension and research, including To MyPlate and Beyond.

Purdue Extension educational sessions and presenters:

  • “Why They Won’t Buy from You: Marketing Tips” and “The Economics of Local Foods” by Roy Ballard, Hancock County agriculture and natural resources educator.
  • “Native Grass and Wildflower ID” by Rob Chapman, wildlife specialist.
  • “Small Farm Financial Management” and “Choosing a Production System: Organic, Sustainable or Conventional” by Steve Engleking, LaGrange County agriculture and natural resources educator.
  • “Conservation Tree Planting” by Lenny Farlee, sustaining hardwood specialist.
  • “Managing your Woods for Wildlife” by Jonathan Ferris, Wayne County agriculture and natural resources educator.
  • “Understanding Animal Behavior” by Mark Kepler, Fulton County agriculture and natural resources educator.
  • “Controlling Invasive Plants in Conservation Plantings” by Brian MacGowan, wildlife specialist.
  • Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) for the Small Farmer” by Scott Monroe, Daviess County economic and community development educator.
  • “Park the Cultivator: Advancing No-till in Organic Agriculture” by Michael O’Donnell, Delaware County agriculture and natural resources educator.

Purdue Extension’s The Education store will be on hand in the Firebaugh Building selling educational products related to production agriculture and relevant to some of the presentations.

“Ag Answers,” a production agriculture news publication partnership between Purdue and Ohio State also will have a booth in the Firebaugh Building where attendees can sign up for a free electronic subscription.

“Farm Science Review is unique in that we’re able to offer the best in agricultural education and focus on furthering the land-grant mission by combining the expertise of both Purdue and Ohio State,” said Chuck Gamble, Review manager. “Our partnership adds credibility to the Review, and there’s no other farm show in the nation that can offer visitors this amount of education and expertise on so many topics related to the latest in agriculture.

Farm Science Review tickets are $7 in advance at all Ohio State Extension county offices, many agribusinesses and online here. Tickets are $10 at the gate. Children 5 and younger are admitted free.

The Molly Caren Agricultural Center is at 135 state Route 38 NE, London. The show runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on September 17-18, and from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on September 19.

More show information is available online where a schedule of events will be posted in August.
