Farmer training in Naituyupaki farm, Narok County.
NPCK has continued to support and promote the potato industry in Kenya through partnerships with various actors and players in the subsector. One of the ways this goal is achieved is through conducting farm demonstrations at county levels aimed at showcasing various innovations and technologies which include high-yielding varieties, certified seeds, high-quality inputs and good agricultural practices aimed at increasing yields and returns on investment.
Farmers visited the last demo for last season in Narok where a number of varieties had been grown (Shangi, Dutch Robijn, Kenya Mpya, Unica, Markies, Destiny, Arizona and Manitou). The partners involved in the demos were Baraka Fertilizer, Biolevel and Nelion Trading limited for crop nutrition, UPL and Corteva Agriscience for crop protection and NPCK for coordination.
