Agri International in Bismarck

Posted:

 

One of the largest farm shows in the area is happening right here in Bismarck.

The 37th annual Agri-International is underway at the Bismarck Civic Center.
This year there are nearly 400 booths in the exhibition hall.
But one of the biggest attractions is the Living Ag Classroom.
Roughly 1300 students are learning about agriculture.
Some schools are traveling from as far as Mott and Gackle to learn about how their food is produced.

(Bonnie Woodworth / Honey Bee Producer) "One third of our diet depends on bees for pollination, so we are just letting kids know that if they would look at their plate that without the bees they would take 1/3 off their plate and that would make a difference. Many of the food things, especially the quality of a lot of our food is dependent upon bees and other pollinating insects also."

The Agri runs tonight until 7.
Tomorrow doors are open from 9-5 p.m.
