Major focus is also on empowering women and the youth in taking up agriculture as business, hence collaborative linkages and initiatives would address issues of unemployment and enhance food security and economic development. The Governor received extensive orientation of the state – of - the–art diagnostic laboratories and the tissue culture technology in the station and was briefed on the various requirements for setting up such a facility in Uasin Gishu County.
“I came to see how potato is produced, particularly the multiplication of the sweet potato varieties at this station,” the governor said.
