NCCK Empowering Pyrethrum Farmers

NCCK Empowering Pyrethrum Farmers

The National Council of Churches of Kenya (NCCK) is working to address key challenges faced by pyrethrum farmers in Nakuru County through development of practical solutions.

Towards this, the Council organized two forums for the pyrethrum farmers, one in Kuresoi North and the other in Kuresoi South Sub counties in which 107 farmers participated.

The farmers discussed and shared ideas on key issues including how to achieve high pyrethrin content, access to affordable seedlings, the dynamics of forming cooperative societies, and access to soil sampling and testing.

The famers were advised to practice good farm hygiene, embrace modern flower drying methods, pick flowers at the optimal stage (Stage 5) to maximize pyrethrin content, and obtain seedlings, and soil sampling and testing services at discounted rates from the government and biotechnology actors.

NCCK together with her partner Dan Church Aid (DCA) are implementing the Daisy Project which aimed at improving policies and regulations to support the growth of the pyrethrum subsector in Nyandarua, Nakuru, West Pokot and Elgeyo Marakwet Counties.
