  The Farm Progress Virtual Experience - September 15 - 17, 2020  
  Mindy Bunselmeyer  9/8/2020 6:15:00 PM  

The Farm Progress Virtual Experience, a merger of the Farm Progress Show and Husker Harvest Days is a unique new opportunity beyond the idea of a virtual farm show. With this platform farmers, ranchers and others around the globe can be part of this event no matter where they are. Which is also good news for FFA chapters around the country.

This year, your chapter CAN be part of this big farm show event. You may have several in your chapters who will be farming in the future and this event offers a special opportunity.

Encouraging chapter members to register to take part in FPVX and perhaps sit in on some sessions as they go live, can be an educational opportunity. The field demonstrations, recorded like never before, occurred in both Nebraska and Iowa – there are no corporate videos in the mix there. It's a unique opportunity, and many of your farmer chapter members would benefit from the opportunity.  We’ll also have new product introductions in the field like the new John Deere X9 and the DOT autonomous system.

In addition, the 20 breakout sessions are timely, relevant reviews of weed control, marketing, managing risk, safety and more. These 28 minute sessions feature industry-leading speakers who will explore their topics in detail.

It's an opportunity for this next generation of farmers to get nearly up close and personal with a range of new tools from balers to combines; from mowers to tillage. This event is packed with information students can use.

There is no charge to attend for your FFA chapter or members, simply register through and join the education in action

The content goes live over three days – September 15-17, 2020.  Click here to view the schedule and event registration link.
