Abstract
Horticultural Industry a fast-.growing sub-sector of Agriculture is the mainstay of Kenya's economy. It contributes very heavily in income generation, employment, foreign exchange earnings and the provision of raw materials for the industrial sector. The priority in Kenya's agricultural policy is to achieve internal self-sufficiency in food supply, to maintain adequate levels of strategic food reserves and generate a surplus of crop and livestock produce for export. In 1990 the sector accounted for 28% of Gross Domestic Product, employing over 70% of the rural workforce and generating about 64% of export earnings.
