Ohio State University’s 47th Farm Science Review was held Sept. 22 to 24 at its 2,100-acre Molly Caren Agricultural Center located near London, Ohio, on U.S. Route 40.

The three-day event was sponsored by the Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences and featured hundreds of demonstration plots and several million dollars worth of machinery.

The event also included inductions into the Farm Science Review Hall of Fame and Ohio Farmer Conservation Awards hands-on demonstrations in the demonstration fields and an expanded program on conservation practices in the Gwynne Conservation Area.

Field Demonstrations included harvesting, strip-tilling, global positioning and tillage.

Another popular feature was the event’s display of antique farm and construction equipment.
