We were happy to see so many friends and readers at the 2013 Farm Science Review. It was truly gratifying to hear the good comments about how Ohio farmer was helping farmers to do be successful and help feed the world. We also appreciated the constructive criticism that visitors offered and promise to use it to improve our service to you.
The 2013 Farm Science Review attendance of 129,864 was an increase of approximately 15,000 from last year's total attendance, according to the show's management with Ohio state University. There was a definite positive attitude toward agriculture among both exhibitors and attendees, said Chuck Gamble, show manager.
Gamble also noted that "most exhibitors introduced new products and new product lines, which correlates directly with the top-notch reputation of Farm Science Review exhibitors."
He says, "This year's field demos were the most dynamic the Farm Science Review has ever seen, with the first-ever flight of unmanned aerial vehicle (or drone) at a farm show and harvest yielding 58 bushels per acre on average for soybeans and 222 bushels per acre on average for corn."
We were also very happy to present the Conservation Farm Family Awards to Randy and Marijane Raber from Cambridge, Ben and Harold Campbell from Diamond, Dan and Doug Weber from Clermont County, the Brown family from Grand Lake St. Marys and Brad and Susan Barber and their partner C.J. Rowe from Mount Orab. Special thanks to our partners at the Ohio Davison of Soil and Water Conservation, the Ohio Farm Bureau Federation and Hancor Corp.
Here are some views of last year's Farm Science Review to hold you over until the next one in Sept. 2014.
