To diversify agribusiness opportunities, the County Government has identified soya bean as one of the key value chain that will bring food security and prosperity to Kiambu farmers. Several initiatives are being implemented by the County Government to improve soya productivity. These include value addition, subsidized inputs and capacity building.
The County Government has supported Njagu farmers’ soya group with 24 members (17F/7M) in Kiganjo, Gatundu South in setting up a cottage industry by purchasing soya processing equipments for milk, beverage and flour. The farmers have been trained on soya bean production, value addition and business management.
The County Government is collaborating with other key players in the value chain to increase production and marketing of soya beans.
