Sustainability at the Farm Progress Show

Farm Progress believes that, together, we can create a path to a sustainable and climate-friendly industry. We are dedicated to environmental improvements that foster a sustainable future and lead to social and economic improvements for our customers and the communities we serve.

Reducing Waste and Carbon Emissions

From our new soybean-based asphalt to our renewable power sources and use of biodiesel, Farm Progress Show is taking steps to propel a more sustainable future forward. Even landscaping materials receive a new home at the end of the show, through local sales

New in 2024, visitors will receive a refillable aluminum bottle when they purchase a water bottle at a food stand. There are two water bottle filling stations on the Boone showgrounds, sponsored by ADM. These stations are located on Lot #1259 and on Lot 18S.

Diversity, Inclusion and Accessibility

In addition to our focus on health and wellness at Farm Progress Show, we’re partnering with organizations like Progressive Ag and AgrAbility to foster safer, more inclusive agriculture communities.

Industry Impact

Farm Progress Show is a gathering place for today’s industry leaders. Politicians and local, state and national government officials utilize the shows as a platform and opportunity to engage with the agriculture community.

Community Support

At Farm Progress, we believe in giving back to the local rural communities who help us host our shows. In 2021 alone, we gave over $467,000 in donations and discounts to local non-profits.
