To realize a green revolution for Africa, experts mentioned the importance of TECHNOLOGY; further the must of more INTEGRATION and COOPERATION and better PLANNING together with increased ADVISORY SERVICES for a successful uptake. A group of European companies, highly dedicated to boost agricultural development, brought all these elements together and will introduce an integrated model for land-, farm- and forest management mid of November in Entebbe/Uganda. Integrated stands for technology cooperation, for farmers integration into cooperative tasks, for horizontal and vertical sector integration, the integration of advisory support and for the integration of financing institutes and insurance companies, which became possible with the help of sophisticated technology.
If you are farmer, belonging to a farm advisory group, or buyer of farm products , seller of machines, crops or chemicals to farmers, or if you are consultant, or forester, or working in the agro-finance sector (eg. Micro-financing) or in the agro-insurance business, if you are working locally or if you are interested in business throughout regions or whole Africa, if you are researcher, NGO´s, expert, project developer, IT- or communication expert who wants to raise new business or if you are a governmental expert, or working with a chamber, for all of you it is a must to take part at this event - you will benefit, personally and for the farm, company or group you’re representing.
You will hear practical examples how advisors can support farmers (small holder farmers likewise large enterprises) in optimizing their farm-management by better planning and control, by exact calculation of their business, optimization of fertilizer, pesticide and water use, by cooperative use of machines and by increasing sales due to traceability and quality certification.
