Kenya: Largest market for Tanzania & Uganda smallholder maize farmers – What about Kenya’s small-scale farmers?

The pulse of the East African Community (EAC) economy is agriculture for the majority population. There is a huge race moving away from subsistence agriculture to agribusiness, with increased yield, quality and pricing being at the centre stage of who wins the battle.

initiatives in EAC nations.
