Embu County government is set to hold an international agriculture trade fair to equip farmers in the region with modern agricultural skills.

In partnership with the Israeli Embassy and Embu University, the County Government will hold a one day trade expo at the end of this month.

The business-oriented trade fair, will further stretch out to become a Centre of Agricultural demonstration unit.

“Embu County will then be a centre of education for bettering agriculture and showcasing agricultural technology,” said Arnon Arbel, Head of Economic Mission, Embassy of Israel.

The trade fair, which will be held at the Embu University grounds on January 28, will bring together different agricultural stakeholders, companies and experts.

The above will offer free knowledge to farmers as well as showcase different farming methods.

Embu County Governor, Martin Wambora, has called on all agricultural stakeholders and youth to come out in large numbers and learn how they can apply modern technology in farming.

Governor Wambora has always encouraged youth to venture into modern farming and agribusiness as a way of adding value to their lives.

The Israeli Embassy will then connect Embu farmers to Israel farmers and investors as a way of enabling and building capacity to local farmers making them agriculture experts.

Companies already set to participate in the trade fair include Start Up Nation Central from Israel, Amiran Kenya, Beauty Line Farm, Danziger and Eshet Eilon.

Others include Evergreen, Closec, Aicl, Kedar Gap, Keilot, Milkey, Plantech and Terraverde Kenya.

County Executive Committee Member for Agriculture Jamleck Muturi said that Embu County government is working round the clock to make Embu food secure.
