There’s even harvesting, strip-tilling, global positioning, planting, manure and tillage demonstrations taking place all week. Catch all the excitement and join us at Farm Science Review (FSR)!
FSR is known as Ohio’s premier agricultural event and typically draws more than 130,000 farmers, growers, producers and agricultural enthusiasts from across the United States and Canada annually. According to Matt Sullivan, assistant manager of the FSR, “participants are able to peruse 4,000 product lines from roughly 600 commercial exhibitors and engage in educational workshops, presentations and demonstrations delivered by experts from Ohio State University extension and the Ohio Agricultural Research and Development Center, which are the outreach and research arm respectively of the college.”
Agriculture is one of Ohio’s largest industries and after ‘thoroughly examining the opportunity to enter the agribusiness lending arena, we corralled the necessary resources and people to successfully grow a portfolio,” according to Scott McComb, Chairman, President and CEO of Heartland Bank. Leading the AG team is Joel Oney, VP and Manager of Agribusiness Lending. Joel and VP Agribusiness Banker Brian Fracker are looking forward to joining a team of seven Heartland Bank volunteers during the three day event in London. “Farm Science Review has long been the premier display of agricultural equipment, technology and services. Heartland Agribusiness is excited to feature our expertise and fixed rate solutions alongside the best in the business.”
