OSU, Purdue Partner As Farm Science Review Turns 50

Purdue University pairs with Ohio State University this month for the eighth year to help present the 2012 Farm Science Review.

The show, September 18-20, will celebrate its 50th anniversary of merging agricultural education, science and technology through presenters, exhibitors, vendors and field demonstrations. It will be held at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center in London, OH, as it has been for the past 30 years.

“We’re proud to be a part the Farm Science Review tradition,” said Jay Akridge, Purdue’s Glenn W. Sample Dean of Agriculture. “Educating farmers about new advances in agriculture is just one way to help ensure the future of the industry. As land-grant institutions, Purdue and Ohio State know the importance of investing in both education and agriculture. The partnership extends beyond the three-day Review.”

More than 140,000 visitors from across the nation and Canada are expected at the Review to learn about the latest advances in agricultural research, conservation, family and nutrition, landscape and gardening. About 600 exhibitors will be on site to showcase 4,000 product lines.

Harvest, tillage, global positioning and manure demonstrations will be held daily. Along with demonstrations, Extension educators and agricultural experts from both universities will present on a variety of agricultural pursuits.

Exhibits, including “Hot Dog’s Fitness Challenge” and “To MyPlate and Beyond,” will showcase Purdue Extension and research.

Purdue Extension educational sessions and presenters are:

  • “Food Hubs 101″ and “Honeybees: Avoiding Pesticide Damage,” Roy Ballard, Purdue Extension educator.
  • “Sunflower Management for Dove Hunting” and “Native Grass and Wildflower ID,” Rob Chapman, Purdue Extension wildlife specialist.
  • “Conservation Tree Planting – Steps to Success,” Lenny Farlee, Purdue Extension forester.
  • “Deer Farming 101″ and “Intro to Wild Game Workshops,” Jonathan Ferris, Purdue Extension educator.
  • “White-tailed Deer Management,” Brian MacGowan, Extension wildlife specialist.
  • “On-Farm Energy Audits,” “Alternative Energy Options for Small Farms” and “Bioenergy Opportunities,” Chad Martin, Purdue Extension renewable energy specialist.

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 above-listed presentations.

“Ag Answers,” a production agriculture news publication partnership between Purdue and Ohio State universities, also will have a booth at the Review.

“There is no other farm show in the country that has as many educational opportunities and expert speakers covering so many topics related current events in agriculture,” said Chuck Gamble, Farm Science Review manager. “We’re able to offer the best in education by coupling Ohio State and Purdue universities. We value that partnership and always look forward to the information and insight it helps us provide our visitors.

“There is nothing like having two powerhouse agricultural universities represented at the Farm Science Review.”

Review pre-show tickets are available for $5 at all OSU Extension county offices and some local agribusinesses. Tickets are $8 at the gate and children ages 5 and younger are admitted free.

Show hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. September 18-19, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. September 20. The Molly Caren Agricultural center is at 135 state Route 38 NE, London.
