As the breadbasket of the Country, Uasin Gishu is a potential large-scale producer of horticultural crops.
During his visit to China, Deputy Governor Daniel Chemno has affirmed the globe of the county’s great potential of producing crops like Avocado, Macadamia and Coffee, all these according to Chemno thrive well due to the favourable conditions.
As the delegation to the China International Imports Expo (CIIE) led by president Kenyatta sealed several deals, an access of the Chinese markets will be an advantage to the exports from Uasin gishu, owing to the existence of Eldoret International Airport.
On many occasions, there have been challenges brought about by fluctuating prices and unfavourable conditions which has led to farmers now shifting their focus on macadamia, coffee and now avocado which not only fetches a lot but also brings long-term benefits.
As the Expo is expected to bring its curtains down on Friday, expectations are high with regards to the opening of the market to the Asian nation, now that farmers have diversified their farming.
