AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - The Maine Agricultural Trades Show is set to begin in the state’s capital city.

Republican Gov. Paul LePage will attend the 74th edition of the trade show at the Augusta Civic Center on Tuesday. The event is hosted by the Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry and is being held Tuesday through Thursday.

The show is one of the state’s largest agricultural exhibitions and attracts producers and consumers. Organizers say the event will include new technology, lectures and courses. LePage says the trades show is “an opportunity to talk about how Maine’s largest natural resource agency supports the farmers and producers who create jobs and economic opportunity in Maine.”
