Farm Science Review
“THROUGHOUT ITS HISTORY, OHIO STATE UNIVERSITY’S FARM SCIENCE REVIEW HAS BEEN AT THE FOREFRONT OF SHOWCASING THE FUTURE OF AGRICULTURE.
The Molly Caren Agricultural Center (MCAC) near London, Ohio is home to the Farm Science Review and attracts upwards of 140,000 visitors from all over the United States and Canada, who come for three days to peruse 4,000 product lines from 600 commercial exhibitors, and learn the latest in agricultural production. The educational programs feature Ohio State and Purdue specialists and are second to none in the agricultural exhibition world.
The 80-acre exhibit area allows visitors and exhibitors to experience all aspects of agriculture production. Inside the exhibit area are the static displays, but the FSR dedicates over 600 acres of land for field demonstrations such as corn and soybean combines, tillage, nutrient and lime applications, and drainage installations.
The Gwynne Conservation Area, GCA, is a 67-acre demonstration and education area for agriculture and natural resources management practices. The Gwynne is home to a natural stream, wetland, ponds, windbreak plantings, crop tree plantings, wildlife food plots, soil pit, riparian forests, dry hydrant and much more. The Gywnne also has an all-season log cabin where educational sessions and classes are taught.”
