Abstract
Kenya, like most Sub-Saharan countries, has continued to rely heavily on the agricultural sector as a base for economic growth, employment creation and foreign exchange generation. Agriculture accounts for 25% of GDP directly while indirectly it is estimated that the sector further accounts for some 27% through its linkages with manufacturing, distribution and other service-related sectors. The sector is also provides income and employment to 80% of the population, especially in the rural areas. In addition, it accounts for 60 % of the total expol1 earnings, 45% of the Government revenue and 75% of industrial raw materials.
