Cutting edge technology will be on display this Wednesday, Thursday and Friday in Regina’s Evraz Place.
The Farm Progress Show connects buyers and sellers of agricultural equipment. Some people are ready to buy, while others are getting up-to-date on the latest technology.
Saskatchewan Agriculture Minister Lyle Stewart will be one of the thousands checking out the equipment and presentations.
“Our producers go there so they can keep up with advances in technology and equipment. That’s part of the reason that our guys are such early adopters of new technology in this province.”
Organizers estimate more than 40,000 people will check out the 650 exhibits. Included in that total are several hundred international visitors from 54 countries.
“It’s a busy three days and last year the show brought in approximately $360 million in international sales to the province,” says Stewart. “It is very important.”
The Farm Progress Show also includes special sessions on drones, farm finances and mental health.
