Commercial Farm Africa

SGS is proud to sponsor and exhibit at the 5th Commercial Farm Africa. Be sure not to miss Cobus Burger speak on how data and imagery in agriculture can improve yield, efficiency and sustainability.
 
Sustainability in agriculture is increasing in importance as the industry is impacted by rising production costs, fluctuating product costs and/or prices and food security requirements, as well as customer demand for better quality/healthier products. Meeting this challenge requires farming enterprises to cut costs, increase production and become more effective, though this task is impossible without definite detail.
 
This year’s event will focus on topics such as:

  • Where are the next hot spots for Africa’s agri investment?
  • Innovative technologies to drive farm productivity and access to markets
  • Sustainable farm investments and operation case studies
  • Focus: rice, soya, fruits, palm, bioenergy crops, sugar, wheat, corn, tea/coffee
  • Access to affordable input materials amid market consolidation
  • Improving soil health and nutrients management
  • Financing agri projects and options
  • Closing the gap in energy-infrastructure link
