food prices have continued rising steadily because there is more population increase and declining land productivity. when the effect of dry weather compounds this issue, more people become vulnerable to the disastrous slide of the shilling. Kenya exports some of the produce but the major decline caused by dry weather makes it more unsustainable. Kenya needs to increase its forest cover to mitigate on water catchment base requirement. in addition to building more dams and initiating irrigation programs, Kenya needs to train its farmers on the correct farming technology including post harvest issues to ensure adequate household food safety. it is important to ensure farmers have access to adequate affordable seeds and fertilizers. the cost of inputs sometimes is so high that farmers cannot afford the cost of carrying out the proper farming for optimum yields. a fertilizer plant establishment would be a better priority since the country can also sell to the neighbors before the idle talk of getting nuclear energy and space craft.
