On 21st April 2023, Central Province hosted the AgriTech Expo, a gathering of farmers from all scales of agriculture. The primary goal of the Expo is to provide a platform for farmers to showcase their knowledge and share their experiences with one another. Whether you’re a small-scale farmer just starting out or a large-scale farmer with years of experience, the AgriTech Expo is the perfect opportunity to learn and grow in your field.
The AgriTech Expo 2023 was a gathering of farmers in Central Zambia, where the focus is the profitability of agriculture as a business. To support this goal, sweeping reforms such as the Comprehensive Agriculture Support Programme (CASP) are being implemented to ensure the success of the agricultural industry.
This platform provides small scale farmers with the opportunity to learn about new methods and tools that can increase productivity and improve their yields. With a focus on innovation, the AgriTech Expo is sure to be a valuable resource for farmers looking to stay ahead of the curve in the ever-evolving world of agriculture.
President Hakainde Hichilema expressed his support for the AgriTech Expo during this year’s event, emphasizing the importance of such gatherings in moving Zambia towards its goal of becoming the breadbasket for Africa and the world. The expo, which brings together farmers from across Central Zambia, provides a valuable opportunity for networking, learning about new agricultural technologies, and sharing best practices. With the continued support of leaders like President Hichilema, the AgriTech Expo is poised to play an important role in driving agricultural innovation and growth in the region.
