The three-day event expects to draw in visitors from various stakeholders including representatives from DA family, government agencies, research institutions, local government units, private sector, people’s organizations, as well as researchers and students from state universities and colleges (SUCs).

There will also be technology presentations in the forms of seminars, business matching for possible partnerships, and other ventures for profitable agricultural enterprises. ###
