3 things happening in agri today, 13 January 2021

It is another exciting day in global agriculture conferences! These are the top three international conferences you should attend today. To get your event listed for free on Food For Mzansi's daily calendar, simply email info@foodformzansi.co.za


Who could have thought that, one day, we would be able to attend conferences in Uganda, Belgium and England in a single day without leaving our home in Mzansi? We live in interesting times and the nation’s farmers are benefiting tremendously from the latest research and knowledge from across the globe.

Here’s what’s happening in the world of agriculture today.


Conference on Agricultural and Biological Science

The key objective of this all-day conference, hosted live from Belgium, is to provide global participants an opportunity to share their ideas and experience with farmers from different parts on the world. This virtual gathering will help delegates to establish research or business relations as well as to find international agricultural linkages for future collaborations. Sign up on their website or email to info@iser.co.


World Congress on Medicinal Plants and Natural Products

Also happening today, all the way from Uganda, is the World Congress on Medicinal Plants and Natural Products. Professionals involved in medicinal plants and natural products will exchange knowledge and gain new insights in shifts brought about by changes in technology, techniques and solutions. The organising committee welcomes participants from all over the world. Want to attend? Sign up on their website. 


Oxford Real Farming Conference

Catch the last day of the UK-based Oxford Real Farming Conference online! It is billed as the unofficial gathering of the real food and farming movement. The conference brings together farmers, activists, policymakers, researchers and all those who support agro-ecology, including organic and regenerative agriculture and indigenous systems. Join the tail end of this inspiring seven-day conference by going to the ORFC website.
