PROSSER, WA. - The latest and greatest farming technologies were on display in Prosser Tuesday.
The second annual Automated Agricultural Systems Expo at WSU's Irrigated Agriculture Research and Extension Center showcased prototypes and working models designed by students.
Organizers say this expo is important to keeping the state's agricultural industry competitive globally.
"One of the reasons one of the areas that we can compete is by incorporating new technologies in our production systems to lower production costs, improve production efficiency, improve product safety and improve product quality," said WSU Assoc. Professor Matthew Whiting.
The free event also provides useful research to growers and industry leaders about the new farming technologies.
