Comprehensive adoption of efficient farming methods by the medium and small scale farmers could greatly boost the overall food production in Kenya.
If the farmers engaged in dairy farming, crop farming and mixed farming advanced their operations from common and traditional methods to technological mechanisms, their gross harvests could voluminously bulge.
The problem that has continued to persist in the local farming is that majority of the farmers are still stuck to the old ways of farming which do yield so little considering the climatic changes which adversely affect crops planted under the primitive ways.
Farmers need to start embracing new technological ways of farming to boost and maintain their productivity, and counter the climatic changes in the country.
Following erratic water patterns experienced in the country since 2008, food production has dropped by huge margins.
In order to restore our food productivity, our farmers must start adopting farming technologies like agro forestry, use the minimum tillage machinery, greenhouses and plant drought resistant crops among others.
Farmers need to diversify their farming so that they do not incur absolute losses in case of failure of their crops.
