During the second week of September, LonAgro Tanzania, together with Jason Brantley-Managing Director of John Deere for Sub Saharan Africa, had the honour of handing over a new 75Hp John Deere tractor to the SAU University in Morogoro.Over the last several years, John Deere Kenya together with a training company from South Africa have been carrying out regular base-training, boot-camps and demos with students, and LonAgro Tanzania is proud to be able to contribute to the program with the donation of this tractor.With this tractor, staff can demonstrate farming techniques and give students a better understanding on mechanised farming.
LonAgro Tanzania was proud to have been a part of the recent Nane-Nane Day Celebrations in recognition of the important contribution that farmers make to the national economy. During the events held in honour of Nane-Nane Day, LonAgro put its capabilities on display with its range of John Deere products at various expos across the country.This year the Nane-Nane Exhibitions ran from 1 August- 8 August, with events held across Tanzania. For 2016 LonAgro Tanzania put on displays in Arusha, Mbeya, Morogoro, Dodoma and Mwanza. These events give farmers and other agricultural stakeholders (e.g., universities and research institutes, input suppliers and fertilizer producing industries) a platform to showcase the latest technologies, ideas, discoveries and alternative solutions aimed at the agricultural sector.Having been part of such an important event within Tanzania, LonAgro once again reaffirmed its position as leading John Deere agricultural equipment dealer in Tanzania.
