HARVEST MONEY EXPO 2018

 

Vision Group organised yet another successful Harvest Money Expo, which ran from Friday until Sunday. This year's farming exhibition came bigger, better and more organised, thanks to lessons drawn from the first edition last year. In fact, this time round, the show took up the entire Namboole Stadium.

Let New Vision photojournalists Miriam Namutebi and Badru Katumba take you around through the lenses of their cameras . . .

 

The modern dip system was one of the attrations at the expo. Even Vision Group chief executive Robert Kabushenga appeared impressed.

 

 

 

For the three days of the show, thousands of people joined the queue at the various gates of Namboole to attend the expo.

 

 

 

There was a whole bunch of stuff on show. The irrigation section was, as expected, very practical.

 

 

 

The more than 100 stalls at the expo drew curious guests, who were keen to learn anything agriculture. At the agriculture ministry stall, guests took notes on milk processing.

 

 

 

At the same stall, exhibitors demonstrated how to grow and breed fish.
