Farmers in Nandi will receive coffee and avocado seedlings from the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries. The seedlings will be distributed to farmers by the Chief Administrative Secretary in the Ministry of Agriculture, Livestock and Fisheries Dr. Andrew Tuimur who will be visiting Nandi County on Thursday for this purpose.

CAS Tuimur will tour areas of Kipkaren, Selia, and Chepterwai in Mosop constituency and later, Kapsimotwo in Nandihills constituency. Farmers have always been urged to embrace planting of the certified grafted avocados which has a lot of yields as it will help them benefit financially.

Days ago, Nandi Governor Stephen Sang flagged off 50,000 coffee seedlings to farmers in different cooperative societies. The seedlings were aimed at improving the coffee farming sector.
