About Agronomy Day

Under the Big Top

Visit the huge blue and orange tent and enjoy the wide variety of interesting, educational exhibits. Chat with company representatives, learn about classes in the Department of Crop Sciences at the University of Illinois, and put your name in the running for door prizes and much more!

Stop by the outdoor display area to see the latest in farm equipment and technological advances. There will also be a showing of antique farm equipment, courtesy of the I and I Antique Tractor and Gas Engine Club.

Lunch and Snacks

Purchase your lunch ticket at the registration tent. Nelson’s Catering will provide pulled pork barbecue and Italian beef sandwiches with all the fixings starting at noon. For snacks before or after lunch, stop by the Field and Furrow Club's booth in the main tent, where you'll find coffee, pop and donuts for sale.
