New technologies, processes to go on show
Dubai, March 17, 2010
Experts will present the latest technologies, equipment and ecological methods aimed at increasing local food production at an upcoming major agribusiness show in Dubai.
A series of free seminars by leading names in international agribusiness will also feature in the AGRA Middle East, running from March 29 to 31 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
The show covers five closely linked sectors – agribusiness; poultry and livestock; fishing and aquaculture; floriculture and newly launched machinery and supplies.
“The Middle East is investing heavily in modern farming methods to reduce dependence on the rest of the world for up to 90 per cent of their food needs and the seminars are designed to help those in this vital business,” said Goutam Malhotra, exhibition manager for AGRA Middle East.
The AGRA seminars will cover topics such as natural insect treatments, the latest technologies in aquaculture, the first 10 days in the life of a chick, and ecological and economical farm management.
“The session by Edwin Willemsen from Dutch company b-Cat, will be of particular interest to local companies wanting to fumigate, conserve or protect their food supply naturally,” said Malhotra.
AGRA has also attracted Jacob Bregnballe and Harald Jelsa experts at Norwegian aquaculture technology group AKVA and Jan Hulzebosch from Salmet Poultry Equipment, a German company that develops, manufactures and distributes high quality poultry equipment around the world. – TradeArabia News Service
