The Kisumu county government has partnered with CMC motors, Alluvial agriculture and Agrized, to introduce mechanisation in rice farming at the West Kano irrigation scheme. The move which is expected to cut production costs by up to 30 percent comes at the backdrop of plans by the national government to increase food production to cut the cost of living. And as Laura Otieno reports, farmers have expressed optimism of enhanced returns from rice farming even as they await the arrival of the subsidized fertilizer.
