Kenia: New potato consortium launched in Kenya

A- Co-operative Bank of Kenya together with various global agricultural input giants and other entities including Agrico, Bayer East Africa, ,,

,,,Simplifine Ltd, and Yara East Africa, has backed a new initiative that seeks to boost yields and incomes for potato farmers in Kenya. The partners have joined forces with several counties by signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on contract farming, crop protection, and value addition on potatoes under a consortium.

The initiative will be implemented over a period of two years and aims to increase the yield of the tuber to 14 tons per hectare against a current level of around 7 to 10 tons. It also plans to reduce post-harvest losses recorded in the sector by 50%.

The pilot program in the first half of 2023 has been launched in the country and targets four counties, including Nyandarua, Nakuru, Elgeyo Marakwet, and Nyeri.
