Elgeyo Marakwet Senator has heeded a challenge to take the lead in educating farmers on the importance of crop diversification.
In a post on his official Facebook page on Sunday evening, Murkomen shared several pictures of his vegetable farm.
According to the pictures, the Senate Majority Leader has planted potatoes,tomatoes, spinach, sukuma wiki and beans.
“Moving towards Agricultural diversification as an important mechanism for economic growth. Hoping to do more next year!”Murkomen posted.
This comes a few weeks after Saboti MP Caleb Amisi, challenged Murkomen to show Kenyans his avocado farm since he has been at the forefront rooting for crop diversification. Through the post it seems the Senator indirectly answered Amisi.
Murkomen had earlier this year said farmers have been demotivated by poor maize prices and should consider diversifying farming activities.
