We identified that there is a gap in farmers' knowledge on how to practice and apply good agricultural techniques in order to achieve higher yields in order to break the poverty chain and food insecurity in our country and Africa as a whole. The fact that 70% of the total Nakuru County land is highl y agriculturally productive, there is no doubt that if measures are put in place for the adoption of Good Agricultural Practices, many small hold farms in the county would transform into profitable and commercially oriented enterprises. Most of the househ olds in Nakuru County that depend on agriculture as their main economic activities are entrapped in drudgery that has continued to pauperize them year out, harvest after harvest. This attributable to a number of bottlenecks along the value chains thave continually clogged farmers’ benefits. inyearhat A significant number of farmers in Nakuru County have an average land holding of 0.77 hectares (that is about 1.9 acres). 49% of these people are poor, whilst 36% of the county’s population is food poor. Ove r and above this, livelihoods of 60% of the county’s population that is either directly or indirectly employed by the agriculture sector are endangered.
With your support we are pleading so that we can change the world together for safe and clean food for health.
