22 May - 23 May
This year’s theme of ‘AGRIPRENEURSHIP AND DEVELOPING SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURAL VALUE CHAINS’ is intended to facilitate the exploration of themes relating to entrepreneurship in the agricultural sphere for job creation and the progression from subsistence agriculture to the marketplace. This theme is important for sustainable development in the agricultural value chain and for those whose livelihoods depend upon it.
If you are interested in discussions about activities along the value chain, for example seed systems, sustainable agriculture production, post-harvest handling and storage, value addition and nutrition, and access to markets, we encourage you to participate. We look forward to thorough exploration of crosscutting issues of relevance throughout the value chain. We gratefully acknowledge funding from the Howard Davis Farm Trust in their endeavour to see communities benefit from knowledge integration between higher education institutions and agricultural stakeholders.
