Sun shines on World Ag Expo as record crowds come to see new technology

For four days in February, thousands of farmers, industry members and interested observers converge on the grounds of the International Agri-Center in Tulare, Calif., for the annual World Ag Expo Farm Show.

Sometimes it rains, often it's overcast and foggy, but 2015 brought four days of sunshine, which enable even more visitors to make the trek from all over California, Nevada, Washington, Oregon and Arizona and other parts of the West.

"We pray for rain," said Jerry Sinift, general manager of World Ag Expo, referring to the drought that continues to impact agriculture in the Central Valley and other parts of California. "But, if we can't have rain, we'll take this."

Here are some of the scenes from World Ag Expo, beginning with Media Day on Monday, Feb. 9, and continuing through all three days of the show.
