Farmers are hesitant to plant as uncertainty about the rains grows.

This comes amid downpours across the country.

The Kenya Meteorological Department recently said late and poor distribution of rains would affect agriculture, leading to food insecurity.

The weatherman said the rains would start in the lake basin and the highlands west of Rift Valley in early March.

The rain would then fall in the other parts of Kenya towards the end of March.

However, subsequent updates by the Met showed that the rains would delay.

Many parts of the country have begun experiencing rain and floods, though the department says it may not be sufficient to sustain crops.

Some farmers in Makueni and Machakos are yet to plant, even as others in Busia and Kakamega say they planted maize weeks ago.

“I used Sh22,000 to prepare my farm, buy seeds and plant. I hope the rains will be consistent,” Mr Joshua Wekesa from Bungoma said.
