DECATUR — If it involves agriculture, you will find it in Decatur this week.

Dubbed “the year of the tractor,” this year's show will include a host of several tractor unveilings, in addition to its usual showcase of the latest advancements the agricultural industry has to offer.
The show runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. today and Wednesday, and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday. Admission is $20 for adults, $10 for ages 13 to 17, ages 12 and under are free.
The Herald & Review will be providing behind-the-scenes looks at the show, covering visits by state and national leaders — including Wednesday's appearance by U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue — and keeping watch for stories about agriculture trends and issues our readers will find interesting, like the future of hemp, farm safety and insight from local students, some of which will see a real tractor for the first time.
