Horticulture and Agriculture Show from today

October 07, 2015 12:00 am | Updated 05:38 am IST - HYDERABAD:

The Association of Event Organisers (AEO), a newly-formed organisation, will conduct a five-day Horticulture and Agriculture Show at People’s Plaza here, beginning Wednesday.

At a press conference here on Tuesday, Khalid Ahmed of AEO said that ever since the government gave up its practice of organising such annual events in 2011, there was a vacuum, especially with people living in the twin cities regretting that there were no nurseries in the twin cities.

“We aim to fill up the vacuum that existed from 2011, till now. We have received registrations from about 70 nurseries and related establishments for putting up stalls at our five-day show, that will be on from 10 a.m. till 8 p.m. Our special focus would be the stalls from growers of organic food, apart from a special space devoted to women,” he said. Nurseries from Pune, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Tirupati, Kadiyam (Rajahmundry) and Darjeeling will be showcasing their produce at this event.
