Ag DayAEM is set to take over the National Mall in Washington, DC on March 23 and 24 to showcase the sustainability benefits of modern agriculture.

AGCO, CaseIH, CLAAS, John Deere, Kubota, Mahindra and New Holland are providing equipment and technology experts to engage the public, Washington policymakers and influencers on the latest in agricultural innovations.  

The area across from the American History Museum and between the Washington Monument and U.S. Capitol Building will be filled with a wide array of equipment, including a combine, forage harvester, tractors big and small, and even an aerial application helicopter.

AEM is holding this event in cooperation with National Ag Day on Tuesday, March 24.

Exhibits will be open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. each day.

This celebration is a great opportunity to demonstrate the incredible level of technology that is on today’s farms and ranches to those who make policies affecting agriculture but have never been on a farm.  

It is important for the equipment industry to tell its sustainability story. Advances in equipment have been critical to improving environmental stewardship while providing the most affordable, safe, abundant and nutritious food supply in world history.

In addition to equipment displays we are partnering with a number of commodity and input groups to provide informative stations on what their members are doing to improve agricultural production efficiency. The Agricultural Retailers Association, American Farm Bureau Federation, American Seed Trade Association, CropLife America, National Ag Aviation Association, National Corn Growers Association, The Fertilizer Institute and USA Rice Federation will be on site. FFA is a non-exhibiting sponsor.
