Celebration of Modern Ag Set to Take Over National Mall

Agriculture equipment manufacturers and AEM partners in the Washington D.C. ag community are gearing up to showcase how innovation enables sustainability in the heart of the nation’s capital.

AEM’s Celebration of Modern Agriculture on the National Mall – set for Monday, March 21 and Tuesday, March 22 – will take place outside USDA headquarters between the Smithsonian Museums and will feature America’s farmers, ranchers and agriculture innovators on the cutting-edge of science and technology.

“AEM is pleased to provide a forum for showcasing these fascinating displays of the innovations that are enabling modern agriculture to sustainably provide for a growing world, as it will serve as an opportunity to help educate policymakers on the sustainability of today’s producers,” said AEM Senior Director of Regulatory Affairs Nick Tindall.

On display will be innovations in such product categories as: combines, seed traits, aerial application, data management, in-field conservation practices, creative chemistry, tractors big and small and much more. All of the exhibits will feature the advancements that drive American agriculture’s long history of producing more while shrinking its environmental footprint.

“Bringing the agriculture community together around National Ag Day to tell this important story could not happen at a more critical time, as USDA is in the process of developing its Climate-Smart Agriculture & Forestry Partnership Program and environmental sustainability continues to be hotly debated in Congress and the media,” said Tindall. “Highlighting how innovation enables sustainability will be vital to ensuring policies allow farmers and ranchers to produce and innovators to innovate.”
