The time has come for the world’s largest totally irrigated working farm show to open its gates. Husker Harvest Days is an opportunity for producers to meet face-to-face with agriculture’s industry leaders and to see the latest equipment, products, and services. The event will be held September 13 – 15, 2022 in Grand Island, Nebraska.
“Husker Harvest Days combines the best elements of community and technology, giving visitors an incredible opportunity to network and gain insights for their farms,” said Don Tourte, senior vice president of sales and events with Farm Progress. “Farmers and ranchers come each year to share their farming legacy while getting up close and personal with the latest innovations to help push their operations to further success.”
The irrigation-focused show is renowned for its ability to connect the agricultural community to ideas and inspiration for their operations. Featuring equipment demonstrations and valuable seminars, the show seeks to help producers move towards greater productivity and profitability. Some highlights of this year’s show include:
Field demonstrations are an integral part of Husker Harvest Days and are held each day, weather permitting. Demonstrations planned for this year include corn combining, tillage, irrigation, haying, autonomy, UAVs (drones) and self-propelled sprayers and mowing.
UAV (drone) demonstrations will help visitors see the uses and benefits of checking their cattle operation or crops and the more sophisticated components that can be paired with UAVs, including spray attachments. Numerous UAV manufacturers and marketers will be demonstrating and explaining their drones and capabilities throughout each day of the show.
The show is known as “The world’s largest totally irrigated working farm show,” and for good reason. In addition to the state-of-the-art irrigation demonstrations, the nation’s largest irrigation companies, equipment manufacturers, and product distributors are key exhibitors at the show.
