CASTOR SEED INITIATIVE

EFF worked with partners to develop castor seed growing trials for research and development and income generation for smallholders in Eastern/Central Kenya: Tseikuru, Kitui and Mbale. EFF worked alongside the Kenyan Agricultural Research Institute (KARI) in partnership with Kitui Training College to deliver training and development workshops to over 1,000 farmers and a large number of Agricultural Extension Staff. Demonstration sites were established and run through our EFF agronomist who lived, monitored and taught within the communities of Tseikuru and Mbale.
