KFA urges farmers to capitalize on new prices

04 April 2013, 15:02 Steve Wambugu

Nakuru Kenya Farmers Association (KFA) Managing Director Simon Cheregoney has urged farmers in the county to capitalize on the lowered maize seed prices during this planting season.

Cheregoney said a packet of 2Kg of maize seed was now retailing at KES150 up from KES180 saying the new price was not fixed and would change with time.

"The government has come up with this subsidized maize seeds and that's why farmers need to take advantage of the lowered seed prices," he said.

Speaking to the media on Wednesday, Simon said the new price was going to normalize once the government stops the seed subsidies.

"KFA is a commercial entity and that's why we will have to sell the maize seeds at their initial prices once the government ceases supporting the new prices," said the Manager.

Cheregoney also cautioned farmers in Nakuru county to be on the look out for fake and expired fertilizer which is circulating during this farming season.

He added that there was need for farmers to buy the fertilizer and maize seeds from authorized farming institutions in the county as one way of increasing the revenue of the county.

"Farmers have to be on the look out during this planting season because there are some scrupulous people who are selling fake fertilizer and that's why farmers have to buy seeds from recognized institutions," he said.
