On April 4th and 5th of this year, the inaugural Agritech Expo will be held just outside Lusaka at Chisambo, Zambia. The event will be an all-encompassing professional, outdoor agricultural trade exhibition bringing regional and international agricultural products and service providers to the market. The expo will showcase some of the world's leading companies in seed production, agrochemicals, irrigation, farm machinery, livestock management, financial services, insurance and agricultural commodities. Agritech Expo will feature live crop trials and product demonstrations, including a machinery area where attendees can observe and "test-drive" the latest equipment. The expo is the result of the vision and dedicated efforts of the Zambian National Farmer Union (ZNFU), the Golden Valley Agricultural Research Trust (GART), Musika and events firm Spintelligent.
