The training that commenced last week culminated on Monday when Deputy Governor Eng. John Barorot led the flagging off of officers tasked with registering farmers who previously missed out during the county-wide exercise.

The Deputy Governor emphasized the importance of the exercise and stressed the importance of accuracy in the registration process.

Barorot urged farmers who have not yet been captured to raise their hands digitally by using USSD code 6163# to update their information swiftly. He compare this action to signaling for help or inviting an agricultural officer to come to their aid.

Th Deputy Governor further pointed out on the necessity for farmers to calibrate their planters properly to ensure the correct seed population per acre.

He also disclosed that Uasin Gishu County is in advanced discussions with cereal companies to establish new distribution points for the fertilizer.

This initiative seeks to enhance accessibility for farmers and streamline the process of acquiring subsidized inputs, ultimately supporting agricultural productivity in the region.

Agriculture County Executive Mr. Edward Sawe highlighted the significance of the initiative, noting that some farmers had provided incorrect details during last year’s registration exercise.

This resulted in them receiving inadequate fertilizer or being excluded entirely from the system.

The registration process, facilitated through KIAMIS, aims to rectify these issues and improve the distribution of subsidized resources to farmers.

Chief Officers Elphas Kesio (Agriculture) Nixon Cheplong (Livestock), Directors Reuben Seroney, Kenneth Kili (AMS), and Jacob Arusei (Cheborarwa ATC) were present during the exercise.
