Farmers Benefit From Planting Root Crops

Media: Kenya News

Root Crops such as Potato and Sweetpotatoes are relatively fast maturing as they take about four months and are thus valued as reliable food security crops. Potato provides good income opportunities for smallholder farmers and enriches diets with minerals and vitamins. Feed the Future’s Accelerated Value Chain Development (AVCD) program that is supported by USAID has been supporting farmers in 15 counties of Kenya to move from subsistence to market-oriented farming and into food and income security.
