     For the first time in it’s nearly 60 year history, the Farm Science Review, scheduled for Sept. 22 to Sept. 24 in London, Ohio will not be held in-person due to the continued spread of COVID-19 across the U.S. and Ohio. A virtual show will be implemented for 2020.

     The current conditions in Ohio are not conducive to hosting a large in-person event, therefore the Farm Science Review management and its executive committee have been working diligently to host another incredible show demonstrating the newest developments in equipment, research, and application to support agricultural production.

     While it may look different, we will continue to meet the needs of our growers and partners through access to exhibitors, virtual demonstrations and education about the most recent advancements in agricultural production.  More information will be shared in the forthcoming weeks about the program and how to engage.

     Beginning in September, virtual visitors can find out about the show’s offerings by going to fsr.osu.edu and clicking on an image of the show’s site. Within that image, people can click on the various icons to find the schedules for talks and demos they’re most interested in, such as field demonstrations or “Ask the Expert” talks. 

Among the livestreamed talks will be "Ask the Expert" presentations that feature the advice of staff from The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) on various topics in agriculture. Viewers will enter the talks through a Zoom meeting link and be able to post their questions in chat boxes. If you miss any, you can check back after the talks to watch the recordings.
