Kenyan-German pact to boost potato production

On Thursday 28 July, an agreement was signed between the governor of Nyandarua county in Kenya and a German delegation, which will see potato production increase in the Kenyan county. The German Government will help the county through the provision of high quality seeds, mechanization of the potato farming as well as value addition. The move according to the Government will help boost the potato production from the current 33 per cent of the national potato production with about 36,446ha of the crop cultivated annually to higher levels. Governor Daniel Waithaka noted that the development would also see farmers uplift their livelihood for the better through value addition. "This will be a major milestone for our farmers who have been planting lower quality seeds and have not been trained on value addition. The German Government has pledged to help us in this as well as providing machinery to help in planting and harvesting in large scale."
