Abstract
The Government of Kenya has placed strong emphasis on the development and growth of the agricultural sector, as a means of "jump-starting" the economy towards industrialization and sustained national development. The government's intention is to increase agricultural production and achieve national food self-sufficiency, alleviate poverty through provision of employment opportunities, and provide the much-needed foreign exchange to finance the critical investment opportunities. Our challenge as a centre continues to be transform arid and semi-arid lands in the country to food secure and net exporters of agricultural and livestock products. Consequently the research programmes conducted by the Centre and the revised institute's strategic plan for 2005-2015 puts more emphasis on commercial ising agriculture through addressing entire agricultural value chains.
