The Horticultural Industry plays a pivotal role in the advancement of Kenya’s agricultural sector. With over Ksh. 147 billion in export earnings generated from this sector and 391.4 MT in quantity, it’s clear that its potential is vast.
The development of this sector necessitates a concerted effort from the government, which is actively exploring avenues for increased mechanization and the expansion of export capabilities, utilizing the Eldoret International Airport and seaports.
Today, CS Mithika Linturi represented H.E, President William Ruto at the Naivasha Horticultural Fair. This event serves as a platform for farmers to connect and exchange ideas with exporters and technology experts.
The CS extended his gratitude to the development partners, urging farmers to seize the opportunity to learn as the government strives to enhance the horticultural industry. #MkulimaKwanza
