DEPARTMENT OF AGRICULTURE INCORPORATES  ALL SECTORS IN DEVELOPMENT OF AGRICULTURAL POLICY DRAFT 2020

The County Government of Uasin Gishu Department of Agriculture, Livestock Development and Fisheries on Wednesday incorporated all its sectors in the development of the Agricultural Policy 2020 draft review at Chebororwa ATC.

The policy aims at coming up with a final document that is all-inclusive both in extension and value addition in the agricultural sector where the policy document will seek to incorporate food and animal security through the adoption of modern, appropriate, cost-effective and environmentally safe technologies across the County.

Agriculture Chief Officer, Mr Julius Rotich while officially gracing off the two-day workshop stressed that there was a need to come up with a document that is complete and beneficial to the residents.

By the end, we need to have a document that harmonizes all the pertinent issues and one that will give a clear direction that will be of benefit to our farmers because we are concerned with adopting a document that will address issues to do with climate change and environmental conservation,” said Rotich.

Livestock Development and Fisheries Chief Officer Dr Victoria Tarus said there is a need to come up with policies as it is what guides them in enhancing services to the residents.

This is a very important exercise as a Department as the policies are very important in guiding our day to day activities and that is why we need to come up with one that is all-inclusive,” said Dr. Tarus.
