LONDON, Ohio — Tickets for the 2017 Farm Science Review, a three-day agricultural trade show Sept. 19-21, are now available for purchase online at fsr.osu.edu.
Buying tickets online allows people to get the $7 early discount price even though they may not live near an Ohio State University Extension county office or participating agribusiness, which are selling tickets at that price.
Hosting more than 600 exhibitors, the review features business advice for farm businesses of all sizes, demonstrations of new equipment and workshops on topics ranging from cover crops to strategies on managing farm labor.
Visitors can talk one-on-one with agronomists, view demonstration plots comparing the timing and placement of fertilizer and manure, and watch experts actively restoring a streambank and prairie.
A new online directory is available that allows people to perform keyword searches to locate exhibitors and to organize a lineup of events they want to attend. For those who prefer paper, a map is provided in the middle of the program.
More than 120,000 people typically attend the Review. Show hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 19-20 and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sept. 21.
The Review’s app, which is available for both Apple and Android smartphone and tablet users, includes interactive maps, a schedule of events, and general information on the show and exhibitors. It’s available by download in the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store by searching for FSR 2017, or by directing your mobile browser to fsr.osu.edu.
With the app, visitors can perform a keyword search to locate an exhibit they want to see and get walking directions to reach the exhibit.
Visitors using the app will be able to browse the interactive map and search for specific exhibitors or product categories.
Tickets for the Review, which will be at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center, are $7 online, at a OSU Extension county office or participating agribusinesses and $10 at the gate. Children 5 and under are free.
