“Agritech Expo Zambia 2019 promises more agro-technology and innovation advancements as the event continues to unveil the future for our agriculture,” said Jervis Zimba, president of the Zambia National Farmers’ Union (ZNFU), the owners of the event.

Last year, the event featured several international pavilions again and a VIP attendance that included three cabinet ministers and the Zambian President Edgar Lungu who visited the event for the fourth year in a row.

Zimba said that the huge success of last year’s Agritech Expo in the face of numerous challenges, including the economic crunch and cholera and FMD outbreaks in the area, “Showed that the organisers, the local partners and the government always manage to work together and towards excellence and year after year deliver an outstanding product that has proven to be valuable and indeed unmissable for regional farmers of all scales, exhibitors and sponsors alike.”

This year the event at GART is expected to bring more than 20 000 visitors, more than 220 local and international exhibitors, including international pavilions from Germany, Italy, UK and Zimbabwe, with 3500 VIP and large scale farmers and 150 members of the media. Agritech Expo Zambia is free to attend for all visitors that pre-register.

Agritech Expo Zambia will feature 16 industry featured zones such as livestock zone, live crop trials, machinery and equipment demos, construction park, 4x4 test track, energy park, international pavilions, indoor expo tent, irrigation zone, centre pivot display, agriteach training workshops, VIP large scale farmers agenda, SME zone, business zone etc.

Agritech Expo Zambia 2019 will also showcase the region’s most prominent players in the aquaculture field and will give the farming professionals attending the opportunity to learn more about this lucrative market and to explore new ways, in which to incorporate this practice into their farming operations.

New features for 2019:

Livestock demos and workshops

Practical demos giving farmers a first-hand experience on how to best care for their livestock.

These demos provide the opportunity for seed companies to practically provide a live training demo to feature the best way to plant seeds with the right mix of agrochemicals and technology to attain solid yields.

In the upcoming edition, farmers will have the opportunity to attend multiple workshop sessions taking place across five different industry themes, allowing farmers a more focused and detailed knowledge building experience. Workshop zones will cover crops, irrigation, machinery and equipment, finance and livestock.
