Kenya's agricultural potential is huge. This is best demonstrated by the bumper harvest currenly experienced in Ukambani (Lower Eastern Province), which is largely clasified as an ASAL area. The success of Ukambani can be attributed to the recent government's initiative of distributing farm inputs to farmers and the elnino rains that have brought good tidings for the people of Ukambani. My take is that such potentials should be harnessed and replicated in other areas of the country such as Voi, Baringo, Tana Riverand the lower regions of Lake Victoria basin. This can be done through development of capital dam construction and irrigation projects to harvest and use rainwater for agricultural and domestic purposes. It's a feasible option for Kenya.
