AGRITECHNICA ASIA,2018

Posted by: | Posted on: August 24, 2018

The Second edition of AGRITECHNICA ASIA, the world’s largest trade fair for agricultural machinery and equipment, is once again ready to be the agricultural exhibition that covers all of Asia by focusing on Asia’s largest agricultural buyers from across the region.

AGRITECHNICA ASIA emphasize on agricultural engineering solutions that are both relevant and important to the development of agriculture in the Asian markets. Mechanization through modern machinery will increase significantly in the next decade mainly due to the growing labor shortages, more competition and therefore the requirement to reduce production costs.

Under the terms of the joint venture, the DLG – German Agricultural Society, organizer of AGRITECHNICA in Hanover, Germany, and Dutch-Thai exhibition organizer VNU Exhibitions Asia Pacific, organizer of VIV Asia and Horti Asia in Bangkok, will collaborate to establish one of the most powerful joint ventures in the agricultural exhibition industry.

The Second edition of AGRITECHNICA ASIA will be held from 22-24 August 2018 at BITEC, Bangkok, Thailand, in conjunction with Horti Asia, the region’s largest trade exhibition for Horticulture in Asia

Expert Workshop on Enhancing Agricultural Mechanization Technologies for Crop Production and Postharvest Processing of Cassava (Cassava Postharvest Mechanization)

Posted by: | Posted on: September 16, 2013

1-1 4-4
7-7 8-8

Subject Expert Workshop on Enhancing Agricultural Mechanization Technologies for Crop Production and Postharvest Processing of Cassava (Cassava Postharvest Mechanization)
Content

▶Date: September 11-15, 2013


▶Venue: Grand Mercure Fortune Bangkok Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand
              Long Beach Garden Hotel & Spa. Pattaya, Cholburi Province
                 
Participants: 17 Participants*
*Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Nepal, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vietnam


▶Overview: 
Recently, the use of cassava has moved from being a simple security crop to a cash crop in proudcing bio-fuel, food grade alcohol and animal feed ingredient. Thus, rural farmers are now venturing into larger scale commercial production of cassava. The increase in production, however, is severely constrained by the lack of production mechanization and postharvest processing equipment that will handle the large volume of cassava produced. Production and processing activities remain manually handled, severely limiting production capacity. Postharvest losses remain high due to limited processing technologies

For this reason, the AFACI has embarked on the regional project on Cassava Postharvest Mechanization. 

One year after its implementation in September, 2012, now the researchers who are involved in managing the project get together and share experience and acheivements in this meeting, which will establish a basis for the remaining two-year implementation.
