AgriTech Expo Zambia in addition to being a business platform for the exchange of technology it is also the most influential forum for the farmers to have meaningful and crucial conversations One example of this is The High-Level Panel Discussion which takes place on the first day of AgriTech Expo Zambia 2021 which formally opens the Bayer Networking Zone which is a new feature area this year. The purpose of the high-level panel discussion is to foster a more inclusive approach in government policy making where the voice of the farmers is also taken in to consideration. This year, the permanent secretaries of the ministries of agriculture, water, labor and trade will take the stage along with the country’s top commercial farmers and address some of the major issues facing the agriculture sector. The Bayer Networking Zone is where these policy makers, farmers, top agribusiness professionals and representatives from the media can continue the conversation in a more relaxed environment and at the same time interact, grow and enhance their network with the representation from the top agriculture machinery and implement suppliers.
In addition to the feature zones, AgriTech Expo Zambia continues to keep its international flair with country pavilions from EU, Germany and Slovenia. International suppliers will showcase their products and innovations from their part of the world tailored to the needs of the farmers in the region. Farmers can also benefit from full expert run workshops on all three days of the trade fair. With a focus on small scale and emerging farmers each day has specific theme ranging from livestock production and organic farming, crop production and solar irrigation and agribusiness and Agri-tech from Day 1 to Day 3 respectively. The topics covered range from disease control in animal farming, seed multiplication, micro finance options for small scale farmers as well mechanization on small scale farms and closer look at innovative methods of irrigation and much more.
