The World Ag Expo is the largest annual outdoor agricultural exposition in the world featuring more than 1,450 exhibitors and more than 100,000 attendees each year.

The 52nd annual World Ag Expo started its three-day run Tuesday at the International Agri-Center in Tulare under cloudy skies that threaten to turn to to rain the rest of the week.

It’s not something the expo hasn’t seen before – and certainly welcomed by its target audience, farmers who help swell annual attendance to over 100,000 with visitors coming from as far as Italy to the big trade show.

Gates open at 9 a.m. Wednesday and Thursday. The grounds close at 5 p.m. Wednesday and 4 p.m. Thursday.

NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine, visiting the World Ag Expo, talks about the increasing role the agency plays in helping farmers and water managers in maximizing “every drop of water,” and checking out the latest in drones from AeroVironment.
