Big Week of Farm Shows | by Shannon Peterson

This is a huge week in agriculture, and not because it’s Valentine’s Day week. Growers and ag business reps are heading to two giant farm shows – National Farm Machinery Show and World Ag Expo.

The largest indoor show in America, National Farm Machinery Show is celebrating its 50th anniversary in Louisville, Ky., Feb. 11-14. It features more than 850 exhibitors, including Valley® Irrigation, and attracts 300,000 attendees from around the world. 

If you’re attending NFMS, download the mobile app to help you navigate the exhibit hall and show activities. 

And, be sure to stop by the Valley booth, No. 82-83, to learn more about BaseStation3™ and the launch of Valley Irrigation Exchange™, our exclusive data-sharing technology. Irrigation Exchange shares irrigation data over the Internet and integrates it with other precision ag data, so growers can make informed, data-driven decisions on water application, nutrient management and other critical farm operations. 

Irrigation Exchange does much, much more. Check back Thursday to read a blog post introducing this innovative technology.

Heading west instead? World Ag Expo in Tulare, Calif., Feb. 10-12, is the world’s largest annual agricultural exposition. More than 1,400 exhibitors are on hand sharing the latest farm equipment and technology. 

Valley will be at WAE too in booth No. NS 20-24. Stop by to learn more about our products, including center pivots and linears, Variable Rate Irrigation (VRI), pumping solutions and innovative technology.

There’s a mobile app for this show too, or take a look around with the live feed cameras
