Agriculture technology and innovation will be front and center for the 34th annual Big Iron Farm Show on Sept. 9-14 at the Red River Valley Fairgrounds in West Fargo.

The show, which has been sold out for months, features 800 exhibit spaces covering the more than 200-acre fairgrounds.

To keep up with demand, Big Iron has launched a mobile app to assist show exhibitors and visitors.

The free-download mobile app is available on the Apple and Android market under Big Iron Farm Show.

The app features show schedules, general information and social media connections.

“The main purpose for the app is to provide a listing of all exhibitors, their products and locations in the palm of your hand,” said Jodi Buresh, fair assistant general manager.

Buresh said she expects the app to be used not only through the three-day Big Iron show but throughout winter as well.
