The Western Canadian Crop Production Show is expected to draw up to 18-thousand people as the Saskatoon event celebrates its 25th anniversary.

The show opens today.

Two-hundred-80 companies have displays and exhibits.

The companies will be selling equipment, promoting new products and services, as well as talking about crop production contracts and marketing programs.

Show spokeswoman Lori Cates estimates more than 95 per cent of the people who walk through the door are directly involved in grain production.

Golden West Radio's Glenda Lee Allan will be filing reports from the Crop Production Show.
