Key Implementing Partners

The County government through County Agriculture offices will facilitate Programme implementation at the County and Sub County levels.

The various value chain actors (agrodealers, millers etc) are tasked with the role of service delivery to primary Programme beneficiaries.

Farmers are central stakeholders in KCEP implementation. The programme’s strategy and activities are geared towards ensuring that, by the end of the programme, they have graduated from subsistence farming to commercial agriculture. The strengthening of Farmer Organisations capacities will be one of the main responsibilities of KCEP partners and service providers.

Programme Targeting Counties: Bungoma, Kakamega, Nakuru, Nandi, Trans Nzoia, Embu, Kitui and Tharaka Nithi
Beneficiaries The KCEP targets 100,000 smallholder farmers whose livelihoods revolve around maize, sorghum, millet and other pulses. The targeted smallholders include:
  1. i). 40,000 subsistence farmers who will be supported to graduate to commercial agriculture of which 20,000 are maize, 13,200 sorghum and 6,800 millet producers
  2. ii). 60,000 farmers who are already engaged in farming as a business and apply appropriate agricultural inputs and improved agricultural services

A secondary target group will be stakeholders in the three value chains who will facilitate smallholders‟ access to enhanced agricultural services, namely agro-dealers, private extension services, buyers, processors, and leading farmers providing support services to smallholders.
