Farmers in Central, Rift Valley and Eastern regions of the country will benefit from a training programme on good crop husbandry, thanks to a campaign by an agro-chemical company.

Greenlife Crop Protection Africa Ltd has been undertaking research on challenges faced by farmers and hopes to support them to boost production.

“Most farmers are not able to recognise pest threats. Also, failure to use the right chemicals results in heavy losses,” said the company’s horticulture manager, Mr George Kariuki.

“In the next two weeks, we have lined-up various meetings with farmers from Nakuru, Eldoret, Thika and Laikipia, with the national event being held in Naivasha,” he said.
