Meru Agribusiness Expo 2016 Bigger and Better

You will agree with farmers from Meru that the Annual Agriculture trade fairs in Tanzania that takes place every first week of August (nane nane) are more than agriculture shows as it comprises exhibitions from almost all sectors. For this reason, three years ago, Farmers from Meru District in Arusha Tanzania with support from the Access to input working group of AgriProFocus Tanzania formed a platform dubbed Jukwaa la Wakulima Meru ( Meru Farmers Platform). They thirsted for a farmer friendly agriculture fair. Good for them, they have for 3 consecutive times quenched this thirst.

The Regional Finance Fair was organized with the Hunger Project, AMFIU, GIZ, SNV, Feed the Future, VECO and Financial Access. It attracted close to 400 participants and 30 exhibitors.

Eldoret Agri-Trade Fair

Event posted by in AgriProFocus Kenya
  24 September 2015 to 26 September 2015 - All Day Event

The Eldoret Agri-Trade Fair will feature potatoes in a big way. Apart from visiting potato demo fields to see, touch and compare the recently released Dutch potato varieties, you can witness potato harvesting demonstrations with state of the art machinery, get information on potato spraying programmes and talk “potato” with representatives of numerous seed potato companies, related industries, and farmers.

This year there is a special feature on potato storage technology. You can see for example a small scale potato storage unit with a capacity of 5-20 tonnes. This prototype unit is produced by sourcing mainly local items such as an insulated container and PV solar panels. Therefore this unit is plug and play, easy to operate and independent from the power grid.

For those who want to know more about innovations in (seed) potato development in Kenya, come and join mini-seminars that are organised daily in the Holland pavilion.

Warm regards,

Nico Rozemeijer – project coordinator
