Agro-Culture Liquid Fertilizers announced the opening of its new IQhub, a 9,500-square foot center for agriculture history, innovation and exploration. The facility features 23 museum-quality exhibits chronicling the changes in agriculture over roughly four-hundred years. Beginning with Squanto's interactions with the pilgrims and the contribution made when he taught them to plant seeds alongside fish for improved soil fertility, and progressing through modern day production and the challenges we face feeding a growing world population, there's something of interest to everyone. 

Visitors to the IQhub can immerse themselves in the history -- and related innovation -- of tillage practices over the years, explore the way water moves through soil, imagine what the world will look like with a population of more than 9 billion people in 2050 and even get hands-on in a cutting-edge tractor simulator. 

Meanwhile, younger attendees can make the connection between farm and fork in the adjacent Kids' Korner. There, many of the same concepts are introduced in an age appropriate manner, engaging children ages 4-9 in games, books and hands-on demonstrations to help them understand how agriculture affects their daily life. 

The IQhub will host its official open house on Friday, September 12, 2014 from 2:00 - 5:00 pm. Guests will include Michigan agriculture and community leaders and members of the media, including national ag journalists and broadcasters from RFD-TV, Successful Farming and others. The public is invited to attend. 

Following the open house the IQhub will be open for regular business hours beginning on Monday, September 15, 2014. Hours are 9:00 am - 4:30 pm Monday through Friday and 10:00 am - 2:00 pm on Saturday. Groups as well as individuals are welcome and transportation grants are available to help offset the cost of bringing school groups to the IQhub. For more information visit agroliquid.com/iqhub.
