Mpumalanga’s own forestry and agricultural show, AGFO Expo 2017, was launched at a networking event held at the Casterbridge Lifestyle Centre in White River recently.

AGFO Expo chairperson Joey Lascelles said the event would provide a trade platform for exhibitors and promote agriculture and forestry in the area, especially local businesses.

The Expo will include a networking function, an agriculture and forestry forum, product demonstrations, various competitions, ‘boeresport’, fire-fighting demonstrations and entertainment for children and adults.

Forest Science Symposium

The 7th Forest Science Symposium takes place from the 18 – 20 July 2017, at the One Life Church in Alexandra Road, Pietermaritzburg.

This event is being hosted by the ICFR and the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO) in collaboration with the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF) and other research partners.

The theme for this year is ‘Research Underpinning the Sustainability of a Diverse Forestry Sector’ and will explore forestry research broadly, looking at natural forests, plantations and woodlands, the range of genera and species, geographical and environmental variation, and the diversity of people and products.

Presentations will highlight research initiatives from across the region’s forest research community and promote the critical role of research and technology in supporting decision-making at all levels across both public and private sectors.

This year the Symposium will incorporate new forms of knowledge sharing including panel discussions and speaker’s corners.

Coupled with this event, IUFRO is planning a three-day pre-Symposium training workshop as part of their special programme for developing capacities, entitled ‘Systematic Review in Forest Science’.
