Maize farmers welcome move to increase prices
Farmers in the Rift Valley have welcomed the decision by the government to increase maize prices at the NCPB to Sh3,000 from Sh2,300 per 90Kg bag. DP William Ruto has directed the board to implement the new prices. Kenya Farmers’ Association director Kipkorir Menjo said the move will enable them to make a profit. Two weeks ago, farmers (pictured) said they would incur huge losses if the prices are not raised.
