NYERI COUNTY FARMERS DAY AT OTHAYA STADIUM THIS FRIDAY:

The demand for avocado fruits over the years has increased internationally owing to the fruit’s vast nutritional value.

Hence, the County Government of Nyeri in conjunction with the Avocado Society of Kenya is cordially inviting all Nyeri County residents at Othaya Stadium this Friday on 31st May, 2019 where industry experts and key value chain players will exhibit their products and services.

Avocado farming has many benefits including increased job opportunities especially for the youth, improved livelihoods of the small scale farmers and increased revenue for the county government.

The County Government of Nyeri is currently working with farmers in the county to increase productivity of the fruit through supply of clean seedlings, farm inputs and farmer education.

Therefore, all county residents are encouraged to attend the free entry exhibition so as to gain more knowledge from each other and industry experts on better ways to improve avocado production in the county.
