The majority of Kenyan farmers work without basic agricultural inputs or updated technology, and lack adequate financial or extension services. As a result, Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) states that “the use of appropriate inputs such as hybrid seeds, fertilizers, and pesticides has been relatively low, resulting in declining yields.
AFC counts on the expertise of its members and of agronomists to fill the training gap of farmers in terms of agricultural techniques but also in business-oriented skills. Their neutral positioning on the market allows AFC to have the confidence of farmers and to be able to make recommendations that correspond exactly to their needs.
On AFC, farmers gain practical skills and share their experiences on how to start, develop, and diversify their activity. It aims at ensuring sustainability of the existing farms and supporting the youths in entering the sector.
