Kenes Exhibition has entered a partnership with Hyderabad International Trade Expositions Ltd (Hitex) to organise the 2015 essay of a two-day international exhibition, Agritex 2015, in Hyderabad, Telangana on March 31 and April 1.

The company is the subsidiary of Kenes International, one of the world’s largest conference organisers. Hitex is co-owned by the government of Telangana and Larsen Toubro (L&T), in a public-private partnership.

As a concerted effort to sustain and augment agriculture in the newly-formed state of Telangana, Agritex 2015 is bringing together the farming community, agri-specialists and agri-service providers on a single platform.

“Here, farmers would be trained and offered integrated solutions to improve productivity and simplify farming, while agri-service providers would get the opportunity to showcase and market their products, techniques and technologies to the participating community,” said the organisers.

“The event is a collaborative effort to sustain and augment agriculture in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. Farmers would be also be trained and given access to integrated solutions to improve productivity and simplify farming, while agri-service providers would be offered with an opportunity to showcase and market their products, techniques and technologies to the participating farming community,” they added.

“There is a drastic decline in the farming incomes, resulting in widespread agrarian distress and reflecting a grave real-life condition,” said Pocharam Srinivas Reddy, minister for agriculture, horticulture, sericulture, animal husbandry, fisheries, Dairy Development Corporation and Seeds Corporation, Telangana.

“Now, the government is supporting the sector with path-breaking policies, which are likely to unfold brighter days for farmers. The government is committed to making Hyderabad the seed capital of India. Agritex 2015 is an attempt in that direction to help farmers increase productivity and decrease costs,” he added.
