Africa Agri Tech taking place from 18 – 20 February 2020 focuses the Southern African agricultural community’s agenda on how the adoption of the latest technologies, innovations and advances in AgTech can deliver greater efficiencies for farmers in 2020 and beyond.
“We are pleased to be associated with this pioneering event,” said Dr John Purchase, CEO of the Agricultural Business Chamber. “Agbiz strives to provide members with a “way to prosperity” and through that to benefit the agricultural community at large through job creation, greater productivity and increased investment. We welcome the inaugural Africa Agri Tech as a means for our members to explore and navigate the latest technologies and to find the solutions that provide them with the ways to increase their efficiency and productivity.”
