Nulandis features at SARA 2017 in Côte d'Ivoire

30 November 2017

Nulandis was proud to play a significant role at SARA (Salon Internationales de L’ Agricultures et des Ressources Animales)  2017, an eight-day expo that showcases direct investment opportunities in the agriculture, animal, fisheries and forestry resource sectors in Côte d'Ivoire.

Hosted in Côte d'Ivoire between 17 and 26 November, the event draws a wide range of influential visitors from across Africa and the global community. It facilitates the sharing of information, knowledge and skills during conferences and workshops that highlight outstanding success stories from around the world.

South Africa held centre stage, with Nulandis showcasing its extensive product offering and the Tiebissou Agri-Park development. The Tiebissou project, undertaken in partnership with Global Africa Integrated Farms, is an African first and incorporates smallholder farmer training and development in a region north of Côte d'Ivoire’s economic capital, Abidjan. The Agri-park concept involves a networked innovation system that incorporates agro-production, processing, logistics, marketing and training. It is aimed at uplifting rural communities with little or no previous agricultural experience and is dependent on a network of industry leaders who provide support and expertise to increase chances of success.

The South African presence was as a major draw card and served to underline its role as a key partner to the host country. It was also the venue for the signing of bilateral agreements by South African Minister for Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Senzeni Zokwana and his counterparts for the Ivory Coast and Ghana.

The NuWay™ concept was another focal point of the Nulandis exhibit and received a considerable amount of attention from interested parties throughout the duration of the show. The NuWay™ approach involves the assessment and precision charting of soil to facilitate the implementation of optimised planting, nutritional and spray programmes with no detrimental effect on environmental and scare resources.

A specific degree of interest came from Mali and that country’s Minister of Agriculture who expressed the hope that it would benefit the cotton industry by producing greater yields within existing farmland.
