Kenyan farmers are set to be issued with 2.6 million seedlings comprising cashew nut, coconut, mango, macadamia, tissue banana and hass avocado within the next two months.

According to S Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Mwangi Kiunjuri, the exercise will commence next week with issuance of half a million coconut and cashew nut seedlings to farmers in six coast region counties.

He says coast nut industry recovery which has remained neglected over the years will be boosted by issuing farmers with cashew nut and coconut seedlings.

Beginning next week farmers in Lamu County will be the first to receive the first batch of 300, 000 coconut seedlings as well as 200,000 cashew nut seedlings to be planted during this rainy season.

The CS says the seedlings are part of 2.6 Million seedlings set to be distributed across the country to supplement farmers’ output in the avocado, macadamia, banana and mango yields.
