(+) BID TO BOOST AGRI­CUL­TURE

The Star (Kenya) - - Counties Central -

Pres­i­dent Uhuru Keny­atta has en­cour­aged coun­ties to pro­mote agri­cul­tural mech­a­niza­tion by ex­tend­ing sup­port to all farm­ers. Agri­cul­tural mech­a­niza­tion ser­vice sta­tions would help sta­bi­lize food pro­duc­tion by of­fer­ing sub­si­dized ser­vices to small-scale farm­ers that will boost food se­cu­rity, Pres­i­dent Uhuru said. He em­pha­sized that tech­nol­ogy is a crit­i­cal driver in the trans­for­ma­tion of the agri­cul­tural sec­tor. Uhuru said coun­ties play a big role in en­sur­ing food se­cu­rity and agri­cul­tural pro­duc­tiv­ity.
