The PS for SDFA&BE, Dr Francis Owino, today morning launched distribution of fish farmers inputs and equipments for the ABSP programme’s beneficiaries and extension officers at Mithure Cereals store. These are Geomembrane Pond Liners, Bird nets, Predator Mesh, Laptops and Motorcycles. The Programme’s target is to directly support 23,400 Level one beneficiaries (producing at subsistence level, at less than 100Kgs of fish per year). The aim is to raise productivity and incomes of the smallholder farmers and to increase fish production base of one ton of fish per farmer per year.
The motorcycles will enhance extension services making it easy for the extension officers to reach to the farmers while the laptops are intended to be used for data capture and reporting.
