More about VA AG EXPO:
“Agriculture: Bringing Promise to Our Future” is the theme for this year’s Virginia Agricultural Expo. The VA AG EXPO, as we like to call it, is an annual event and the largest agricultural field day held in Virginia, and always takes place on the first Thursday of August. As an educational, marketing and social event, farmers and agribusinesses look forward to the VA AG EXPO each year as it moves from one working farm to another to showcase the diversity of the different areas of the state. This year the event heads to southeast Virginia at Land of Promise Farms 3169 Land of Promise RD Virginia Beach, VA on Thursday, August 3, 2023.
The VA Ag Expo is sponsored by the Virginia Grain Producers Association and the Virginia Soybean Association, in cooperation with the Virginia Cooperative Extension Service, with support from Virginia's Soybean, Corn & Small Grains checkoff boards
Virginia Tech Participation:
For the third year in a row, Virginia Tech’s Center for Advanced Innovation in Agriculture will co-host an exhibition tent at the event, where producers will learn about not only the current technologies available to them, but also emerging technologies that may strengthen agricultural efficiencies and economies. To strengthen partnerships and share the science-based techniques, Extension specialists from the Virignia Seafood AREC and other offices will also be there to discuss how to put research into practice.
