Agriculture, Livestock & Fisheries

Home / Agriculture, Livestock & Fisheries

Agriculture, being the economic backbone of the County, it implies that necessary infrastructural support has to be put in place for this sector to play her rightful role. This shall include development of the Showground site in Olkalou as more expansive land shall be sought. Existing Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (KARI), Ol’Magogo ranch and Animal Health and Industry Training Institute (AHITI) have to be expanded and equipped to perform their research and training functions adequately.

KARI should assist in research on agricultural based activities/enterprises to which the county has comparative advantage as well as in new ventures hitherto untapped. Courses offered at AHITI should be tailor – made to boost livestock production and value addition.
A number of projects, as enumerated below, are proposed to be undertaken in the next five years.
