Purdue Farm Management Tour & Indiana Master Farmer Reception
Learn about innovative farm management strategies, new technologies for improving efficiency and productivity, ways to ensure a successful transition of farm operations to the next generation at the 90th annual Purdue Farm Management Tour on July 11.
Purdue University’s Center for Commercial Agriculture and Purdue Extension sponsored the tour, which included stops at two farms in Washington and Jackson counties in Indiana. Each tour included an interview session where farm operators provided an overview of their farms. Host farmers also shared successful farm management tips, discussed how the management of their operations is changing in response to the agricultural economy and evolving family circumstances, and shared reasons behind their recent innovations in production practices and adoption of new technology. This was an opportunity to ask questions and learn from the experiences of Indiana’s best farm business managers.
The Master Farmer program is a long-standing tradition in Indiana and honors individuals who have contributed to Indiana agriculture and demonstrated success in farming efficiency, stewardship of natural resources and community service. A reception with a panel discussion was be held in conjunction with the Tour to honor the 2023 Indiana Master Farmers at 4:00 p.m. July 11, 2023 at Cornerstone Hall in Salem, Indiana.
