CANTON, Mo. (WGEM) -

Tri-State farmers got the chance to see the latest technology in their field Friday.

Twenty-five farming vendors set up shop at the first annual Canton Farm Expo to showcase their products to local farmers.

The expo was hosted by Ursa Farmers Co-Op as a way to introduce farmers to products they may not have been aware existed.

"Technology plays such a big role in agriculture today. We just want to make sure that all the individuals are in touch with the technology and the products in the area and maximize their profits," said Michael Hicks. 

Organizers say almost 90 percent of the companies represented at the expo were from within miles of Canton.
