The farm show was held virtually in 2021 and featured educational programming in an online setting. This year, Agweek plans to host panel discussions on four hot-topic issues in agriculture: ag in a carbon neutral world, cybersecurity in agriculture, animal ag policies, and urban agriculture.

Show manager Eric Olson said he’s excited to see the live show return to Rochester.

“Having a venue for farmers to connect directly with a variety of agriculture suppliers, services and vendors is key to maintaining our local farms and food supply. A live show brings excitement and innovations that can only be found when different aspects of the industry are together in one place,” he said.
