Upcoming event: Agritechnica Asia in Bangkok, with conference programme
As international travel restrictions to Thailand and the region ease further, the agricultural and horticultural machinery community for Asia will be meeting from the 25th to the 27th May 2022, at the AGRITECHNICA ASIA & HORTI ASIA trade fair in Bangkok, Thailand. Joined by country partner Vietnam and guided by sustainability-led smart farming, the trade fair will welcome 300 brands from 26 countries offering hand-picked solutions for this region.
The event also provides professional knowledge and networking through its conference programme and practical features like vertical farming, cannabis cultivation and smart farming.
Live demonstrations of drones performing precision tasks within an exhibition hall are planned within the new Thailand Smart Farming Pavilion, initiated and hosted by the Thai Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives (MOAC). The trade fair is taking place at BITEC exhibition grounds in Bangkok and features a wide range of machinery displays applicable for the region.
“Smart farming is one of the integrated solutions for sustainable agri-food systems. Integrated solutions need integrated actions from policies, business and the farmers. Precision agriculture has to monitor the changes and apply the appropriate technologies at the right place, at the right time and at the right rate. AGRITECHNICA ASIA is the right place to explore your ‘right’ technology and services that you need,” says Vanida Khumnirdpetch, Director of MOAC’s Bureau of Foreign Agricultural Affairs.
