US: International Crop Expo returns

The International Crop Expo began 17 years ago and the event returns Feb. 21-22 at the Alerus Center in Grand Forks, N.D. Roughly 4,000 people and 170 exhibitors are expected to attend. It begins at 9 a.m. both days and ends at 5 p.m Feb. 21 and 4 p.m. Feb. 22. Admission and parking are free. “We think there’s a lot of good speakers and good information again this year,” said Lionel Olson, an agronomist with Integrated Ag Services in Northwood, N.D. who has helped to manage the show for many years. The Crop Expo — created by the combination of events hosted individually by small grains, potato and soybean groups after the Alerus Center opened — will again host educational sessions geared specifically to spuds, small grains and soybeans/dry beans.
