AGRICON 2021

RECAP

AGRICON 2021 offered a range of opportunities to End Hunger through exhibitions of agro-produce, workshops, introduction of mechanized agriculture to local farmers, and women and youths’ empowerment. The event themed: “Building a National resilience for sustainable food security #EndHungerToday” consisted of various components of improving farming and also the export capacity of Nigerian businesses and MSMEs.

 

AGRICON 2021 specifically targeted local farmers, exporters of agricultural commodities, agro-processors, input suppliers, and other agripreneurs along the value chain in the agricultural sector. The gathering availed farmers, women, youths, and other agro-stakeholders a unique opportunity to meet, greet and strike business deals with players in the agro-export community, and attracted over 1,800 congress participants.

AGRICON 2022

UPCOMING EVENTS

Benue State, known as the “Food Basket of the Nation” is very much endowed with a wide variety of economic agricultural produce that is yearning for viable presence in both the local and international markets. The slogan “Food Basket of the Nation” is a reflection of post adequate exploitation of the vast agricultural resource of the state. However, the ravaging effects of Covid-19 and notable widespread insecurity have impacted negatively on this otherwise viable resource. The state Gross Domestic Product (GDP) has taken a bad plunge and needs to be reestablished to its deserved status.

 

Our focus is to use the #EndHungerToday initiative to once again encourage youths and women’s participation in farming and agribusinesses. We will be doing this through skill acquisitions to strengthen the value chains of high-impact commodities i.e. those that are in demand locally, regionally, and internationally.
