In addition, the events will bring together a wide range of processing equipment technology manufacturers, farming equipment technology producers, animal feed producers, poultry and egg production equipment manufacturers, crops and livestock management companies, stock and inventory control system companies, greenhouse manufacturers, packaging companies, agrochemical companies and others.
