The Strategies, The Know How, The Farmers

Although less than eight percent of land in Kenya is under cultivation, agriculture remains the country’s most important economic activity. Only about 20 percent of Kenya’s
land is suitable for farming, of which just 12 percent is classified as high potential (adequate rainfall) agricultural land and eight percent as having medium potential.
The rest of the land is arid or semiarid. About 80 percent of the country’s work force is in agriculture or related value addition sectors.
Farming in Kenya is mainly by small producers who cultivate an average of two hectares (about five acres) using limited technology.
