Even after 60 years, there’s always something new at Farm Science Review, and for this year’s show, which runs September 20-22, it starts with how visitors can purchase tickets.

A new mobile ticketing option will allow visitors to print tickets at home or save them on a mobile device for entry. Presale tickets priced at $10 will be available online at and at participating sales locations, such as OSU Extension district offices and participating agribusinesses, until midnight on Monday, September 19.

Tickets can still be purchased online during Farm Science Review (FSR) for $15. Children under 5 are free. Visitors can still buy paper tickets with cash or credit card at the gates. Parking is free.

Hosted by The Ohio State University College of Food, Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, FSR is held at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center, 135 State Route 38, near London. The 60th FSR will focus on ‘Embracing Time and Change’. Viewing hours are 8am to 5pm on September 20-21 and 8am to 4pm on September 22.

“For six decades, FSR has provided a place for agriculture to come together to showcase products, services and educate the public to improve profitability, sustainability and excitement for future opportunities,” said Nick Zakrich, FSR Manager.

“As FSR reaches this milestone year for the 60th edition of the industry gathering, there is great optimism that the next 60 years will be full of new practices and technologies that can be showcased at Farm Science Review.” For more information, visit
