This year the African Seed Trade Association (AFSTA) congress was held in Mombasa Kenya from March 4 to 7, where it was attended by hundreds of delegates from dozens of countries (both from Africa and worldwide). Hazera was proud to take part in the Congress, alongside leading international and African seeds companies, as an exhibitor and members of AFSTA.
As part of Hazera’s ongoing commitment, we are continuing to share our knowledge throughout the world – and this time with growers in Kenya. We held two open field days in Kenya last week, in collaboration with Amiran K Ltd. One field day focused on Russet onions, while the other day highlighted Shanty Improved tomatoes.
