The global supply chains of various sectors have been adversely affected. The world is going through a large scale economic and social restructuring.

As businesses have stepped into the post coronavirus future, world is slowly and gradually trying to find a balance between what worked before and what needs to be done to succeed in attaining the “Next Normal” which is highly used term worldwide now.

Meanwhile, restructuring and revival of the impacting world economies could make places such as Africa more viable for increased agriculture production. The continent is generally regarded as a wild card in the agriculture industry. The potential is huge, but the continent faces significant challenges - including access to energy and irrigation, as well as the need for basic agriculture infrastructure - that put its ascendance in question. Overseas investors’ participation in infrastructure may become a deciding factor in accelerating the continent’s rise toward self-sufficiency rather than remaining a net importer.

With an aim of modernising Africa’s agriculture, Radeecal communications have been organising Agritec Africa, an international exhibition and conference on agriculture technologies from 2014 at Kenya.

“We are pleased and thankful that Ministry of Agriculture Livestock, Fisheries and Cooperative has continuously extended their support to us since the first edition of Agritec Africa in Kenya.”

Modernising East Africa’s and Kenya’s agriculture in the face of post COVID-19 crisis and changing climate will require significant investment. Investments in irrigation can increase the likelihood that farmers maintain yields even when the weather is unfavourable.

Better roads can help connect markets, which would help farmers sell their crops at fair prices. Improvements in the functioning of seed production systems would provide farmers with new varieties of seed that are suited to new conditions. Upgraded crop-storage facilities would prevent spoilage and food waste.

“Through, Agritec Africa we have year by year tried to provide a business platform for the growth and development of Agriculture Industry in Kenya and East Africa which demands huge investment and introduction of latest technologies for reaching up to its potential level.”

Leading to an increased demand in various sectors of agriculture industry like irrigation technology, seeds & bio-technology, agriculture equipment, storage solutions, agriculture chemicals and dairy technology industry, grain and grain allied technology, the 7th Agritec Africa, Dairy Livestock & Poultry and Graintech Africa are anticipated to attract major participation ever by the established national and international players.

Agritec Africa 2020 is jointly organised with Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock, Fisheries and Cooperative, Republic of Kenya. With participation profile of nearly 175 companies from Kenya and abroad, this year and an expected footfall of more than 15,000 visitors Agritec Africa 2020 is going to generate tremendous business opportunities. Agritec Africa 2020 will be organised on 28 October 2020 at KICC, Nairobi, Kenya.

Along with Agritec Africa 2020, Radeecal Communications have also planned on organising Dairy Livestock & Poultry Expo Africa and Graintech Africa as co-current events where many international companies are going to participate and exhibit their featured products to the visitors. Farmers, Dealers, traders, Agronomists, Scientists, Farm owners, etc. will take part in the exhibition as visitors/ delegate.

“Since our commencement we have been growing in International participation in Agritec Africa. In 2014, we had seven countries participation and with a gradual Growth today in 2020 we have reached to 20 + countries participation which includes country pavilions like India, China, Turkey And Egypt. We are also gaining in terms of attracting international visitors to witness this exhibition from eight countries in 2014 and this time around we are expecting visitors from 25 countries in 2020 edition. To give more exposure to our show from 1st edition we organised concurrent event titled Dairy Livestock & Poultry Expo Africa and further more in 2019 we organised field of Grain & Grain allied Technology titled as Graintech Africa Exhibition,” the organiser stated.

The main theme of the exhibition is: Improving Farmers’ Income through innovation and technology. The theme is aligned to the Kenyan Government’s Big 4 Agenda Initiative with specific focus on two of the four pillars i.e. food and nutrition security; to drive smallholder productivity, reduce the cost of food and enhance large scale farming and manufacturing; specifically, the agro-processing where the government intends to generate over US$200mn annually in value additions.

The theme also focuses on the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by world leaders in 2015, to embody a roadmap for progress that is sustainable and leaves no one behind.
