Episode 10 – Visiting Farm Science Review

If you will be joining us at Farm Science Review this week, tune into Episode 10 of the Agronomy and Farm Management Podcast.

We talked to different members of the Extension Farm Science Review planning committee about what is going on this year. Nick Zachrich addresses the expansion of the exhibit area, some new features and exhibits and even some tricks on how to make the commute a little easier. Nate Douridas talks about the crops and field demonstrations. Trey Colley goes into a little more detail on one field demonstration specifically, the Ag Innovations Demonstration which focuses on precision agriculture technology. Mary Griffith shares what attendees can see and learn at the Gwynne Conservation Area and Harold Watters discusses what is featured in the Agronomic Crops Demonstration Plots area. We also discuss a few more educational exhibits, demonstrations and talks where a wealth of information related to all aspects of farming and farm life can be gained.

Farm Science Review is unique in the farm show circuit because it is part of a University and able to provide an abundance of educational opportunities for visitors. Download the Farm Science Review app from the App Store or Google Play or visit http://fsr.osu.edu to learn more.
