Elgeyo Marakwet farmers get one million tea seedlings

Elgeyo Marakwet has distributed one million tea seedlings to farmers in a Sh16 million agricultural subsidy programme.

The county will also supply 200,000 coffee and 50,000 avocado seedlings to farmers. The programme aims at improving food production and increasing income among residents.

A research commissioned by the county in 2014 showed the Elgeyo highlands are favourable for tea growing. The programme was launched by Governor Alex Tolgos on Monday.
