Ag Expo begins today in Yakima

More than 500 exhibits are expected

— The eighth annual Yakima Valley Ag Expo opened this morning and continues through tomorrow at the Yakima Valley SunDome.

More than 500 exhibitors are expected to showcase all things agriculture — from mammoth field equipment to farm worker housing — in the SunDome in the State Fair Park, 1301 S. Fair Ave.

Organizers said this year’s expo offers a broader scope of exhibits staffed by company leaders and product experts, with the latest innovations, products and technologies featured.

Farmers will have an opportunity to kick a few tractor tires, as well as attend chemical certification classes in the Modern Living building.

Tomorrow, the annual Washington Hop Industry meeting will be at 8:30 a.m. at the SunDome.

The agriculture show and certification classes end at 4 p.m. tomorrow, organizers said.

The two-day show follows a similar event held earlier this week at the TRAC in Pasco.

There is no admission to attend the Yakima show.

Parking is also free, organizers said.
