Farmers in Weiwei, looking at a bumper harvest

A section on farmers in Weiwei, Pokot County are looking at a bumper harvest this season, courtesy of the ongoing heavy rains in the county.

Unlike their counter parts across the country, the farmers took advantage of the early rains and planted in time.

The farmers further entered into a partnership with Kenya Seed Company who supplied them with adequate seeds and fertilizer.

So far, over one thousand farmers have received the seeds and fertilizer worth three million shillings from the company.

According to Weiwei farmers association chairman Mark Meut, plans are also underway to diversify to maize seed production in an effort to promote farming among the pastoral community.

Stakeholders have further called for speedy interventions against the menace of the fall army worms that is still a threat to their crop as well as construction of dykes amid rising cases of flush floods.
