Buckeye State farmers and their neighbors will have their choice of agriculture’s best selection of spreaders for a variety of applications as the team from BBI Spreaders joins area partner Agro-Chem for the 52nd Farm Science Review.
Held annually at Ohio State University’s Molly Caren Agricultural Center near London, Ohio, the Farm Science Review attracts more than 140,000 attendees from across the United States and Canada. BBI and Agro-Chem will stand proudly with more than 600 exhibitors showcasing more than 4,000 products and services representing the latest in equipment and technology geared for farming and related industries.
In addition to the 80-acre exhibit space, Farm Science Review also features 600 acres for field demonstration in areas such as corn and soybean combines, tillage, nutrient and lime applications, and drainage installations. Agriculture specialists from Ohio State and Purdue University will offer educational programs in multiple areas of specialty as well.
At this year’s Farm Science Review, BBI is celebrating the recent launch of another standard-setting spreader, the all-new Javelin. Introduced at last month’s Farm Progress Show in Iowa, the Javelin is the latest addition to BBI’s Producer Series, a lineup of spreaders optimized for large-acreage applications of fertilizer, lime, and other nutrients. By achieving a consistent spread swath of 120 feet, the Javelin has created a new class of application efficiency for emergent plants.
Agro-Chem, with locations in Wabash, Indiana and Wilmington, Ohio, is one of BBI’s key partners for the region. Founded in 1975, Agro-Chem has been an early and consistent leader among ag equipment dealers in bringing new equipment and technology to farmers in the region. The company plans to showcase BBI’s industry-leading hydraulic platforms for precision application of fertilizer and lime, MagnaSpread, and organic materials, Endurance. Both MaBBI gnaSpread and Endurance maximize yield and minimize waste through precision agriculture technology.
Each platform arrives standard-equipped with BBI’s proprietary Binary Manifold, making connections to all leading industry precision farming technology applications a snap. In addition, the company offers its own precision agriculture suite, the Task Command System, as standard equipment on all of its hydraulic spreaders, including Javelin, MagnaSpread, and Endurance. The Task Command System from BBI Electronics features guidance, auto-steer, and variable-rate application capabilities, driving greater precision with drastically-reduced material waste and fuel consumption throughout each nutrient application.
To support Agro-Chem’s efforts at Farm Science Review, BBI will send Lee Kilpatrick, Director of Sales and Marketing, as well as Dennis McCauley, the company’s territory sales manager for the northeastern United States and Canada, and Russell McEver, manager of the company’s after-market parts and equipment division. “Farm Science Review is one of our company’s favorite events of the summer ag show season,” said Kilpatrick. “From working with the Peas family and Agro-Chem now for multiple generations, farmers in this area recognize quality and true advancement in the profession, and our products provide a great match for where they want to take their operations over the long haul.”
