12,000 People Visit Ag on the Mall

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers partnered with other ag industry stakeholders to showcase American agriculture at the National Mall in Washington, D.C. It was a chance to show the public how farmers feed and fuel the world while protecting the environment for future generations.

More than 12,000 people came to the National Mall for the second Celebration of Modern Agriculture. The three-day event featured combine harvesters, milking equipment, sprayers, planters, irrigation equipment, and tractors of all sizes. The public also saw interactive and hands-on exhibits by grower groups and agriculture innovators. This year’s theme was “The Future of Food and Farming.” The showcase of the event focused on the advances driving American agriculture’s long history of producing more while reducing its environmental footprint.

“The latest agricultural innovations are much more than just tractors – these technologies are powering a sustainable future,” says Megan Tanel, President of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers.
