Farmers, agro-industry players, service providers and other stakeholders in the agriculture sector will have an opportunity to showcase their innovations and technologies at the Farm-Tech Expo Kenya.
The Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organization (KALRO) and Spintelligent believe the expo will also provide a platform for farmers to engage in business networking.
According to the organisers, the event will also bring together agriculture scientists small and large commercial scale farmers and stakeholders, and service providers from across the entire agriculture value chain.
“We believe that the expo will provide an all-round platform to network, market and share knowledge on how to best harness the power of technology in agriculture and ensure the best outcome for farmers’ produce,” said KALRO Director General Eliud Kireger.
KALRO is expected to showcase cutting edge research products and services available within its 16 Institutes in collaboration with various sponsors, partners and stakeholders.
The organizers have confirmed that many companies that deal with agriculture machinery 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.
Among the countries that have confirmed participation and will have pavilions to showcase their technologies include Poland and China.
“In Farm-Tech Expo Kenya you have a winning team with a winning formula and we can’t wait to show the agriculture sector in Kenya what we managed to achieve with Agritech Expo Zambia during the last five years” says Dominique de Lauwere, the Spintelligent event director.
