6th Agritec Africa 2019

The upcoming edition of Agritec Africa, International Exhibition and Conference on Agriculture Technology will be held in Nairobi, Kenya during June 19-21,2019. Africa has huge potential for Agricultural growth, thanks to ample amount of Land and Water Resources. Yet, land and agricultural productivity are found to be one of the lowest in the world.

In Africa, Agriculture employs 65% labour force. Agriculture Sector accounts for 32% of GDP of Africa. Africa requires attention on following three core areas for Higher and Sustained growth:

Facilitating agricultural markets and trade

Improving Agricultural Productivity

Investing in public infrastructure for Agricultural Growth.

Agriculture sector contributed 24% in the total GDP of Kenya in year 2011 – as per the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics 2012.

Kenya’s agriculture sector directly influences overall economic performance through its contribution to GDP. Periods of high economic growth rates have been synonymous with increased agricultural growth. Several untapped crops cultivation in Kenya affect African Economy – Tea, Coffee, Sugar, Horticulture, Floriculture, Cotton, Macadamia Nuts, etc.

Presence of R&D Centers, Agricultural Infrastructure, Agricultural University, Government support, initiative by NGOs and other associations has made Kenya a unique choice for such a international exhibition on Agriculture Technologies.

Although farming is the most important economic sector in Kenya, less than 8% of the land is used for crop and feed production and less than 20% is suitable for cultivation.

Kenya is a leading producer of tea and coffee, as well as third leading exporter of fresh produce, such as cabbage, onions and mangoes. Small farms grow most of the corn and also produce potatoes, beans and peas.

The agriculture sector in Kenya is very influenced by externalities, like weather conditions and global economic and financial developments. The significance of the Kenyan agricultural sector is reflected in numerous national strategies and policies.

Govt. of Kenya is currently implementing Strategy for Revitalizing Agriculture (SRA) with the intention to “transform Kenya’s agriculture into profitable, commercially oriented and internationally and regionally competitive economic activity that provides high quality gainful employment to Kenyans”.
