Nairobi - Potato prices have spiked in Nakuru town due to scarcity of the produce mainly grown by small scale farmers concentrated in some parts of the county.

A two kilogramme is currently selling at Sh 100 in major market outlets against Sh 50 in March. This unattractive rate on the small quantity has been caused unfavorable cost of the 110kg bag.It is selling at an average of Sh 6,000 up from Sh 4,000

According to Edward Mwamba, secretary general of the Kenya National Potato Farmers Association said many farmers are currently in the planting season thus the decline in supply.

“There is shortage since some farmers are preparing for planting while others are doing their final harvesting,”Mwamba said Thursday.

He said the ongoing rains have also contributed to the high rise of the prices as brokers have find alternative ways of transporting the produce from the farms.

He said due to the inaccessible they are using alternative means such as donkeys to ferry the produce to points of reach.

Traders mainly get potatoes from farmers in Molo, Njoro, Kuresoi North and Kuresoi South sub-counties, areas riddled with poor roads
