MESSAGE FROM HORTICULTURE DEPARTMENT.

Chuodho women group is involved in horticulture and Industrial crops. The horticultural sub-sector in Kenya plays a major role in meeting domestic needs for food, the generation of income and foreign exchange and creation of employment. An estimated 1.8 million people are employed in the sub-sector. Since small-scale growers constitute 80% of the horticultural producers, this sub-sector plays an important role in the alleviation of poverty by providing higher incomes to small-scale farmers who constitute 75% of Kenya's farming population. It is noteworthy that only 4% of the horticultural produce is exported while the bulk is consumed in country thus contributing to a balanced diet for the growing population.

Goal

Appropriate/superior horticultural crop production technologies and knowledge to sustainably enhance incomes of Chuodho people developed, validated and usage catalysed.

Purpose

Development and validation of profitable horticultural and Industrial crop production technologies and their usage catalysed.

Crops we grow:

  • French Beans
  • Water Melon.
  • Tomatoes
