Producers Show Well at Farm Progress Show

Enthusiastic crowds visit the ADM Tent.

The Decatur weather could not have been more perfect for this year’s Farm Progress Show which ran August 29-31. Pleasant conditions and beautiful blue skies seemed to put attendees in a relaxed and upbeat mood. And, judging by attendance in the ADM tent, many producers were interested in learning more about how ADM’s product and service offerings could benefit their operations.

Show attendees were treated to an ADM hospitality tent that featured a variety of areas where conversations could happen, special presentations and debut videos were presented, and guests could take a break from their lengthy walking around the vast show grounds.

Stage presentations covered a variety of important producer topics including:

  • Navigating the Risks and Rewards of the Current Ag Markets
  • BiOWiSH Crop Liquid
  • Regenerative Ag Programs Designed with Producers in Mind

Interspersed between presentations, ADM was proud to debut four new videos featuring Central Illinois producers who live not far from Farm Progress Show. There was a new Faces of Food video featuring Susie Harbaugh and three new Producer Perspectives videos highlighting their regenerative ag practices.

In addition to the wonderful crowd of producers from not only North America but other international countries, ADM was honored to host many governmental officials from the federal, state, and local levels.


Here are a few photos of the many happenings that took place:
