The annual exhibition is a venue for farmers and fisherfolk to showcase their produce, for agripreneurs to capitalize on the research and development (R&D) technologies developed in the country, and for the private sector to adopt such technologies.

It will revolve around the theme, “Agripreneurship: Mainstreaming Agriculture and Fisheries R&D by Delivering Technology Breakthroughs to our Farmers and Fisherfolk.”

The forum is geared towards establishing and strengthening networks among various stakeholders, and provide a venue for business matching opportunities and profitable ventures.

Expected at the event are Senator Cynthia A. Villar, DA Secretary Emmanuel “Manny” F. Piñol, among others.

Aside from several seminars and product demonstration, the event will also witness the launch of the Rationalized Regional Research, Development and Extension Network for Agriculture and Fisheries (RRDEN).

The event comes during the 31st BAR Anniversary. (EKU)
