“In Farm-Tech Expo Kenya you have a winning team with a winning formula and we can’t wait to show the agri sector in Kenya what we managed to achieve with Agritech Expo Zambia during the last five years” said Dominique de Lauwere, event director of the inaugural Farm-Tech Expo Kenya.

The event is set to gather stakeholders, retailers, agents, service providers from across the entire agri-value chain and farmers from small to commercial scale into one arena to provide a unique outdoor and interactive buying platform for all agriculture professionals, from live crop trials and machinery demonstrations to free-to-attend training workshops.

“We will have the same winning combination of technology, learning and networking at Farm-Tech Expo Kenya - this has been the key to the success of Agritech Expo Zambia and helped it become a firm favourite on the regional agri calendar,” said Dominique.

The event will be organised by Spintelligent that also organised Agritech Expo Zambia which won several AAXO ROAR awards, including twice for Best Africa Bound Trade & Consumer Exhibition in the 12000+ sqm category.

According to the organiser, many of the longstanding partners of the Zambian event have already signed up to be in Naivasha in September, including CASE, Toyota, John Deere, SAME, BASF, Chief Industries, Lindsay Africa, FarmCo, Mascor, Massey Ferguson, QBS, E.A.Seed, Trimble and Yara.

“Kenya is a regional hub for East Africa and is therefore strategically very important for the region,” said Ian Allen, general manager for agri mechanisation department at CASE and Toyota Tsusho East Africa Ltd (TTEA).

He continued, “We are inspired to be partners in developing agri-mechanisation in the region in order to produce more food for a growing population. We need to improve yield and production from less available land through good mechanisation suited for our customers.”

According to Allen, “A highlight for us in the last 12 months is the big breakthrough we made into the very competitive sugar belt sector. We also had continuous penetration into the high HP and harvesting sectors. We are also in the process of expanding our network to Nakuru which is located in the heart of the agricultural region in the country.”

“Case IH will have a wide range of equipment where customers can come and see and drive machines fitted with the latest technology suited for all types of farming including precision farming,” Allen further noted.
