agriculture 89168 640AgriTech Expo Zambia will be back at the GART Research Center in Chisamba Zambia for the seventh edition of the show from the 15-17 April 2021 after being postponed earlier this year due to the Coronavirus pandemic

Presented by the Zambia National Farmers Union (ZNFU) and jointly organised with the Zambian subsidiary of the German Agricultural Society (DLG Agriculture), AgriTech Expo Zambia is the leading international agriculture showcase event in sub-Saharan Africa. With 48,000 sqm of exhibition space already sold, 120+ confirmed exhibitors, seven international pavilions and 16 exciting feature zones the 2021 edition of AgriTech Expo Zambia is set to be action packed for both the small scale and large-scale farmer alike. 

DLG Agriculture has announced that they have launched the AgriTech eLearning Platform. The AgriTech eLearning platform offers a digital arena where interactions between farmers, equipment manufacturers and suppliers can be carried out with ease. The AgriTech eLearning platform is open and free to access for all. Farmers from the region can benefit from a wide variety of educational content from experts, exhibitors and other organisations to inform themselves about farming best practices and the best technology and innovation currently available in the market. With these insights and impulses, they can increase the productivity and therefore profitability of their farms.

In addition, the AgriTech eLearning platform allows exhibitors to engage the farmers with their products, services and offerings in advance of the show. The exhibitors can build on the trust they develop using this pre-show interaction with their potential clients they meet them physically at the trade fair in April 2021.

Christopher Armstrong, marketing director, AgriTech Expo Zambia, DLG International, said, “2020 has been a hard year for everyone, we at AgriTech see that as a sign to work even harder, delivering more value for our customers and stakeholders. The AgriTech eLearning Platform is a perfect tool. It gives our stakeholders another opportunity to make up for lost time and carry out their essential business engagements before they come to the field in April.

“Our ever-growing network of farmers can filter and select content ranging from farm management best practices, crop protection techniques, equipment and technology highlights all delivered by experts, exhibitors and institutions through engaging videos, top tips, informational articles and much more.” 

In addition to the launch of the eLearning Platform, DLG Agriculture announced that the field mark out was completed by the operations team last week. The field mark out is the first step in the field preparation activities for the trade fair. Visitors of the show in April can expect a comprehensive and sophisticated hygiene concept and a new site layout ensuring a safe, structured and effective networking experience at the show.

In addition to the new site layout the attendees of AgriTech Expo Zambia 2021 will experience the all-new Bayer Networking Zone and the Livestock Zone. Day 1 of the trade fair, which is reserved as the commercial farmer preview day will be focused at the Bayer Networking Zone. The Bayer Networking Zone will not only host the networking activities of VIPs, exhibitors and sponsors with top commercial farmers and industry professionals but also be the breakout area following the high-level panel discussion with senior government officials and the district farming association representatives which will address the key governmental policies affecting the farmers in the region.

The Livestock Zone at AgriTech Expo 2021 will offer visitors a live auction and animal show as well as interactive workshops and actual livestock in the field. DLG Agriculture and the Zambian National Farmers Union (ZNFU) are working closely with the ministry of fisheries and livestock in Zambia to ensure a safe and effective livestock display at AgriTech Expo 2021.
