Knowledge Center

Kabul International AgFair is a place where not only agriculture produce and equipment are displayed and traded, but also new ideas and advanced practices are exchanged in agricultural production, irrigation, high quality seeds production, plant protection, animal health, food preservation, quality standards, certification, finance and access to market. Thus, AgFair Knowledge Center has became a permanent part of the agenda, providing our visitors with useful presentations and round table discussions on the topics that are the most relevant for Afghanistan's agriculture sector and agribusiness incentives.

This year's agenda covers three truly relevant topics: Primary Production, Value Added/Processing and Finance and Marketing. Three groups of presentations will be held simultaneously in three different tents on October 31 and repeated on November 1.
Because of relevancy and huge interest we recommend you register on time to get your seat in the Knowledge Center.
