Avocado Farming Officially Launched_in Molo 011217

Turi Ward, Molo - KEPHIS, the Pyrethrum Processing Company and the County government of Nakuru officially launched avocado growing in Molo, with farmers being urged to add the fruit to potato and pyrethrum growing to upscale their standards of living.
Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries Cabinet Secretary Mr Willy Bett noted that there was a huge demand for avocado in the world market, with demand exceeding supply, particularly the hass variety. "Please add avocado to your farming and you will benefit in many years to come," he urged the more than 800 farmers who attended the farmers field day at Chandera Primary School. "We want as many farmers as possible to grow avocado which when you plant today you will start harvesting in 2-3 years," he said. The CS also launched pyrethrum farming by planting a commemorative tree in the school grounds. He noted that pyrethrum had been facing challenges which were being addressed and the sub-sector was on the road to recovery.
Molo sub-county is known for potato and pyrethrum farming due to its conducive climate and fertile soils.

On potatoes, the CS said his ministry is focused on varieties for processing into chips and crisps in addition to table varieties. "We are also keen on constructing cold storage facilities so that farmers can benefit in potato production; when there is an over abundance of potatoes farmers can store the surplus in the facilities and then sell when there is a shortage of potatoes," he stated.
Nakuru Governor Lee Kinyanjui said his government will closely work with the Ministry of Agriculture and agencies such as KEPHIS to improve agriculture in the county for the benefit of farmers.
Also present were Livestock PS Dr. Andrew Tuimur, Nakuru Senator Susan Kihika, Women Rep Liza Chelule and area MP Kuria Kimani.
