The largest annual agricultural exposition of its kind opens its gate at 9 a.m. Tuesday in Tulare for the 46th year.
World Ag Expo again expects about 100,000 visitors from 70 nations over its three-day run.
They’ll stroll through 2.6 million square feet of show grounds where more than 1,400 exhibitors will be showing cutting-edge agricultural technology and equipment.
More than 40 seminars are being offered in beef, dairy, hay and forage, international trade, irrigation and general agriculture categories.
"Not only do buyers and sellers come together at World Ag Expo to do business, but agricultural producers also attend the show to expand their knowledge of agricultural issues, production methods and international trade," says Jerry Sinift, the International Agri-Center's chief executive officer.
