Agrohub will take part in the largest world exhibition of agroinnovations
Agrohub will take part in the 20th International Exhibition and Conference of Agricultural Technologies, which will be held in Tel Aviv on May 8-10. This year, a separate section will be devoted to Ukraine: “Innovative Synergy: Ukraine and Israel”. The founder of Agrohub and co-founder of Radar Tech Julia Poroshenko will talk about the introduction of innovative technologies in Ukraine.
Yulia Poroshenko: “Historically, Israel is the center of the world’s agricultural innovations. In its short history, this small country has made more than one breakthrough in the cultivation of food. Since the 1950s, Israeli experts have found effective ways to grow crops under adverse conditions, and they have shared this experience. Today the whole world of agri-innovators is coming to the exhibition in Tel Aviv, and Ukraine needs to be a part of this living ecosystem to participate in international cooperation.”
At the exhibition, there will be 150 participants from 16 countries representing solutions in 28 directions of agri-industry. The conference includes 15 expert discussions on the theme of 2018 – “Agri-production in arid and semi-arid conditions”. The task of Agrohub at the 20th International Exhibition and Conference of Agricultural Technologies is to find new solutions for Ukrainian agri-producers and to present Ukrainian agri-innovative achievements to interested companies.
In 2017, according to AgFunder, a record $ 10.1 billion was invested globally in agri-innovation, which is 29% more than in 2016. The 20th International Agritechnology Exhibition and Conference 2018 is organized by Agritech Israel and knees exhibitions in cooperation with the Government of Israel. It connects industry, business, science, and regulators to give entrepreneurs, investors, and partners new opportunities.
