The expo will be open free of charge, and will feature displays by dozens of commercial vendors; an Educational Resource Center featuring experts in pest control, water use and crop production; and a series of seminars on topics of interest to Southern California farmers and ranchers.

Organizers said attendees who preregister will enjoy express check-in at the event, which begins at 9 a.m. on Nov. 5. Vendors interested in participating have until Oct. 20 to reserve a booth space.
