THE final preparations for the 2012 Agriculture Show are in progress, setting the stage for Fiji's largest agriculture display.
The week-long event in Lautoka starts on Monday and organisers are finalising the construction of display booths and stalls for agricultural departments and businesses.
"Right now we are just sorting out minor details like booth and stall placements and we're building stalls for those who have been confirmed for the show," said co-ordinator Eliki Tikoidraubuta.
He said the show would provide information for the public, especially young children.
"We have a booth for the Ministry of Education apart from the ones we have for all the agriculture departments and they are equipped with as much information that we can provide the students," he said.
Mr Tikoidraubuta also said there was an overwhelming response from business houses who want to set up displays at the show.
"We still have a few businesses calling us that they want to have booths at the show and we are trying to sort that out," he said.
The show begins on Monday, August 6 and ends on Saturday, August 11.
According to the Agriculture Ministry, the event will showcase all fish, forestry, crops and livestock cultivated or bred in Fiji and will involve key stakeholders in the agriculture, fisheries and forestry sectors.
The show will run from 8am to 8pm daily.
