The 57th Annual World Ag Expo ran from Feb. 13 – 15 this year, spotlighting over 1,200 exhibitors at the International Agri-Center in Tulare, California. Every year the farm show brings tremendous revenue to Tulare County, as well as a deeper appreciation for California agriculture.  

Over 100,000 attendees saw the latest in ag tech, heard from industry experts at the seminar trailers, and experienced a snapshot of the Central Valley’s dedication to agriculture. This year, several of the exhibitors demonstrated their technology and highlighted a catered approach to the unique ag landscape of our valley. 

World Ag Expo Chairman Stan Creelman told ABC News that the local economic impact is more than $56 million. Along with several new, innovative technologies, the farm show featured its first live cattle auction.  


While exhibitors and attendees traveled across the nation to attend the expo, several local companies gained tremendous exposure. The show included over 100 demonstrations of various types of agricultural equipment as well as educational displays. One company, Nutrien Ag Solutions — the world’s largest crop inputs company with several crop consultants located in the Central Valley — offered an interactive booth with flower seeds.

Many of the exhibits showcased their worth for the Central Valley landscape in terms of its unique terrain. Clawson Motorsports attended the show with its all-terrain vehicles, focusing largely on electric vehicles to align with California’s goals and regulations.  

Another company dedicated to sustainable energy solutions, Valley Pacific, highlighted its mission to fuel California. Alternative fuels, such as biodiesel, were showcased, underscoring the company’s initiative to meet any grower’s needs while remaining sustainable.
