SENECA FALLS, N.Y.— Emissions control is a hot topic in the agricultural community.

Farmers attending 2010 Empire Farm Days, Aug. 10-12, will be able to learn more about the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency emissions control requirements (known at IT-4 or Interim Tier IV) that will take effect in 2011 for off-road diesel engines, such as those running tractors, combines and irrigation systems.

The daily panel discussions that will begin at 10:30 a.m. in the special events center will include:

• New York Farm Bureau Senior Associate Director of Public Policy John Tauzel

• Milton Cat Emissions Business Manager Wayne Clark

• Bell Power Systems (Essex, Conn.) Dealer Development Manager Jerry Stewart.

The 300-acre Empire Farm Days event includes DairyProfit seminars, animals, an equine center, farm safety and family displays/activities, 600-plus representatives of agricultural institutions and organizations, and equipment test drives.
