Farm Progress Show set to make its in-person return
Farm Progress Show is back in person for the first time since 2019. Show manager Matt Jungmann says, “nothing replaces the live event.”
He says this is one of the first big ag events since Commodity Classic 2020.
And while the members of the ag industry haven’t been together for the last year and a half – he says the new technology and equipment haven’t stopped. “There have been new products rolled out, they just haven’t seen them in person,” he says. “This is everybody’s chance to catch up on what they’ve missed.”
In addition to the products that farmers haven’t seen in person – Jungmann says there’s also the stuff that’s making either its North American or global debut. “The new Fendt Rowgator, the new template inside all the Fendt tractors,” he says. “New Kubota tools, new versatile DeltaTrack, a new strip-till bar. There are just all these new things.”
The show runs from Tuesday, August 31 to Thursday, September 1, 2021. Jungmann says they’re following safety precautions for COVID-19 per current State and Local Health Department guidance.
