The Department of Agriculture is distributing high-value crops to encourage farmers to diversify to high-value crops. This was designed to assist farmers’ access to planting materials for County promotional crops such as coffee, grafted avocadoes, Tissue culture bananas and macadamia, pyrethrum, and sweet potato vines. The County Government through the extension officers made a decision to progressively migrate farmers’ mindset from overreliance on maize and wheat production to a diversified household economy as per Governor Bii’s Nguzo Kumi blueprint. There has been a notable increase in government support to the farmers across the County.
