H. E Anne Waiguru visited the dry rice farm in the county of Abruzzo, which has very advanced, intensive production that has been created in joint partnership between the private sector and university of alimentary science in order to have of all the certifications and high nutrition standards.
The dry rice farming saves 90% of water in comparison to paddy rice farming, production for 2 acres is 9 tonnes per season and cost of production per Kg is kshs32 while selling price is Kshs822.
If this is introduced in Kirinyaga it would drastically reduce production cost while simultaneously increasing selling price thus economically enabling our farmers from their farming.
