Farm Science Review, an agricultural trade show and educational event, returned to an in-person format this year after going virtual in 2020 due to the pandemic. Attendees had to contend with lots of rain and high winds during the three-day event which took place Sept. 21-23 at the Molly Caren Agricultural Center just outside of London. The severe weather shut down the Review on Sept. 22, but the event was back in action the next day.
