Whereas majority of farmers in Uganda are deprived of access to agricultural information due to low levels of education, knowledge exchange through exposition is known to break education and literacy barriers for the most ordinary farmers. These information and communication barriers similarly cause a divide along the production, supply, marketing, financing and other major segments of agricultural value chains.
The Fort Portal Farmers’ Exposition aspires to provide a level learning field and open Agri-business opportunities for Farmers, Consumers, Processors, Transporters, Exporters, Manufactures, Financiers, and other key players in the Agriculture Sector.
The EXPO, is first of its kind in the region and is expected to be visited by over 10,000 visitors will;
a) Gather in one place, farmers from all corners of the region and agro-input dealers and manufacturers from outside Fort-Portal.
b) Give an opportunity for farmers to share knowledge, and for the public to be exposed to new information and technology. It is a good moment for farmers, the public and agro-input dealers to exchange business information.
c) Treat visitors to good practice experience in different agricultural subsectors. Willing farmers are invited at their own cost to join a Learning journey at a home of a prominent farmer near Fort-Portal Town. There will be a bus available for only farmers that subscribe way in advance to take part in the Learning Journey.
