Zambian agriculture continues moving with changing times and environment, so does Agritech Expo,” Coillard Hamusimbi, the Head of Services and Agribusiness for the Zambia National Farmers Union, the organisers of the upcoming Agritech Expo Zambia says. Speaking ahead of the event he said that farmers should brace themselves for yet another exciting edition of the agribusiness and agricultural technology and B2B platform. The award-winning event returns to Chisamba for the fourth time this year from 27-29 April.

“Agritech Expo has blossomed into an umbilical cord bonding together national, regional and global farmers, agribusinesses, policy makers and development agents as they search for solutions to ever increasing pestilences, adverse weather effects, wasting soil health/fertility, dwindling productivity, inadequate irrigation and mechanisation and increasing stock diseases. Agritech Expo 2017 has been designed to specifically give farmers the innovations and business connections they need to move their farming and agribusiness to the next level,” Hamusimbi added.

Last year the event drew a record-breaking attendance of 17,605 visitors. This year even more small-scale, emerging and commercial farmers are expected to descend on the GART research farm in the heart of Zambia’s agri-hub, where the latest farming products and services will be showcased. According to the organisers, a key feature of this edition of the show is that it will feature a greater international presence with international pavilions from Germany, Zimbabwe, Czech Republic, the Netherlands, the UK and France.
