ND State Fair Focuses on Ag

Posted: Updated:

The North Dakota State Fair offers everything from rides, to shows, to good food.  But it also offers people the chance to learn.

Its not just livestock barns and machinery row, the 2013 State Fair has put a huge focus on incorporating agriculture throughout the fair grounds.  The North Dakota Ag Experience features exhibits throughout the fair that display facts on different aspects of the state's agricultural industry.  This year also features the Agrium Seed Survivor exhibit.  It's a mobile plant learning station that gives kids the chance to see what plants need to survive through virtual games and hands on activities, "It's really important to us that we make agriculture a showcase here because we're one of the few places that has everything at our fingertips to be able to tell the correct story of agriculture because if we don't tell the correct story, who will," said Jennifer Hubrig, Marketing Director for the North Dakota State Fair.

The State Fair has also teamed up with the NDSU Extension office and the Granville FFA to plant their annual crop plot, which displays the typical crops found in North Dakota.
