Elgon Kenya Limited has partnered with the Ministry of Agriculture to launch The National Farmers Award, the first of their kind in the country and region, meant to celebrate the country’s unsung heroes who have surmounted odds to provide for millions and oil the economy.
Kenyan farmers have been among the region’s most unlucky. From erratic supply and price of fertilizer in recent times, to late delivery of planting materials like seeds which has ultimately affected planting and harvesting seasons, and lack of ready markets, the farmers have nevertherless braved new and emerging challenges to keep a trade and a profession going.
