Vehicles to Enhance KEPHIS Regulatory Capacity in Seed Production Systems, Mitigates Against Crop Losses and Monitor Food Safety

KEPHIS Headquarters, Nairobi - Six new vehicles, purchased through the United Stated Agency for International Development (USAID) through the FOODSCAP Project were flagged off this morning as KEPHIS endeavours to fulfil its regulatory mandate to the people of Kenya.

KEPHIS Board of Directors Chair Mr. Wycliffe Murwayi said the vehicles will transport staff to various locations countrywide to undertake the work of the three year Project and also support surveillance work.

Last year, KEPHIS entered into the three year Project to fulfil three objectives:

1. To provide supportive seed production systems services to farmers growing orphan crops to assure availability of seeds

2. To mitigate against crop losses through plant health management strategies and diagnostics

3. To monitor food safety through checking for food contaminants and implementing a pilot regional program on the generation of suitable pesticide residue limits

The beneficiaries of the Project will be over 3,000 small scale farmers of banana, cassava, mango, avocado, passion fruits, snow peas, mange tout, runner beans, sugar snaps and valore beans farmers. Others will be farmers who need quality seed for large scale production of small cereals and pulses as well as other traditional varieties, tissue culture laboratories and nurseries, entrepreneurs to supply disease free and high quality planting materials, nursery operators to supply high quality clean planting materials and lastly staff of various institutions both public and private.

The twenty two (22) counties of Bungoma, Busia, Kakamega, Vihiga, Homa Bay, Kisii, Kisumu, Migori, Nyamira, Siaya, Bomet, Kericho, Elgeyo Marakwet, Nandi, Trans Nzoia, Uasin Gishu, Kitui, Machakos, Makueni, Meru, Tharaka Nithi and Taita Taveta will immensely benefit from the Project.
