The gathering provided a platform for farmers to exchange knowledge, share their experiences, and learn from each other, with the ultimate goal of improving agricultural outcomes and promoting a more sustainable future.

One of the key areas of focus during the discussions was the implementation of better farming practices. Experts in the field also shared insights on integrated pest management, crop rotation, and soil conservation methods that can optimize yields while minimizing environmental impact. Through these discussions, farmers gained valuable knowledge on sustainable farming techniques that can help increase productivity while preserving the long-term health of their land.

Setting the Sustainability Agenda for people, planet and prosperity

NBF stressed the significance of water conservation, efficient irrigation methods, and the use of renewable energy sources in farming operations. Participants were encouraged to explore techniques such as drip irrigation, rainwater harvesting, and solar-powered solutions to minimize water usage and reduce reliance on non-renewable resources. These sustainable practices not only contribute to environmental preservation but also help farmers achieve better cost-efficiency and long-term profitability.
