Farm Progress Launches Virtual Show

Farm Progress and Husker Harvest Days will host the Farm Progress Virtual Experience (FPVX) from Sept. 15 to 17.

“The beauty of a virtual event is that we will open the virtual gates on Sept. 15 with a slate of field demos and rich content, but once live, farmers can engage the content all year long,” says Don Tourte, senior vice president, Farm Progress. “With this event, the farmer can virtually stroll through more than 500 exhibits in their own time, and each exhibitor will have valuable new information to share.”

Farmers will be able to search exhibitors by categories consistent with the structure of the in-person show.

Organizers say the event will kick off with something “made richer in this virtual environment.”

“We’re going to have what may be the most extensive field demonstration program we’ve ever conducted with corn harvest, tillage, hay and cattle equipment,” says Matt Jungmann, events manager, Farm Progress. “And we’ll include a first-look at a range of autonomous tools.”

The FPVX will be free to attendees and compatible with viewing on desktop computers, smart phones, and tablets.
