The Amiran Farmer’s Kit (AFK) was created with the aim of allowing small scale farmers affordable access to modern agricultural technologies, methods and inputs of the highest standard. Designed by Amiran Kenya Ltd, the AFK is a tailor made Kit designed to meet the needs of the specific farmer or group of farmers by adapting the components of the Kit to suit the climate, terrain, and agricultural experience of the farmer.
The AFK incorporates innovative agricultural technologies including the Family Drip System (FDS), an easy to use gravity based drip irrigation system, a Farmer’s Greenhouse and top quality agro-inputs such as Seeds, Fertilizers and Agro-Chemicals.
The AFK comes complete with installation, training and an agro-support package that would allow Amiran to teach the “Amiran Farmer” how to grow and then stay with the farmer throughout the season to ensure the best results.
The AFKs are custom made by Amiran Kenya Ltd for individuals and specific groups of farmers and include all the necessary ingredients required for one season’s successful harvest of a selected crop.
