KEPHIS AND STAKEHOLDERS TRAIN FARMERS ON GOOD AGRICULTURAL PRACTICES

Riat, Nyatike Constituency - Riat is an area in Nyatike Constituency near Sito Valley. Farmers in the valley grow sugarcane (seed cane), bananas, beans, maize, kales, watermelon, groundnuts and mangoes. There are streams that flow through the valley all year round. The region is also in close proximity to Lake Victoria. (Sito is the dholuo corruption of the word Store, meaning the valley has abundance of food).


It is against this backdrop that KEPHIS and other stakeholders held a training and field day to sensitize farmers on pests and disease management, crop production, dairy farming, identifying opportunities for market access, the establishment of fruit tree nurseries to enable the production of varieties of fruit trees and other Good Agricultural Practices.

The Cabinet Secretary, Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries Hon. Willy Bett graced the occasion where he engaged the 1000 farmers on the government's commitment to the agriculture, livestock and fisheries sectors. Earlier, the CS visited Agolomuok Primary School where he donated cash and items to the pupils and Sori Beach Unit where he stated the government's commitment to enhanced fishing and provision of boats to patrol Lake Victoria and Lake Turkana. He also officially opened the Sori Sisal Factory; he toured Joseph Alendo Primary and Girls Secondary School, Obware Mixed Secondary School and commissioned a laboratory at Okayo Secondary School. Later, he opened a chief's camp and an Administration Police Post to enhance security in the constituency and launched a Cassava Programme. Farmers at the Field Day also received sprayer packs to combat the Fall Army Worm.
