Do you want to know the latest innovations in the agriculture sector? The Eldoret ASK Show is the place to be. The event, which started on Wednesday and ends on Saturday, is a hotbed of agricultural innovations that seek to boost farmers’ productivity amid the rapid climatic changes.

Among the innovations on display are new chicken, cattle, goats and sheep breeds, climate-resilient and high-yielding fodder, climate-smart farming techniques, post-harvest, value addition and urban farming technologies as well machines that can help farmers easily transport their produce to the market.

These technologies are in sync with the theme of the show, which is “Promoting climate-smart agriculture and trade initiatives for sustainable economic growth”.

The Kenya Yearbook Editorial Board (KYEB) team is at the event documenting these technologies and many others, which it will disseminate in its upcoming publications that include “AgendaKenya” and Agro-Innovations. Look out for them.

KYEB is also taking the opportunity to educate the public, including students, on Kenya’s past and present using its publications that include, The ”Yearbook”, “Towards Food Security” and “Moi Cabinets” which are a hit with showgoers.

Uasin Gishu Governor Jonathan Bii is among the dignitaries that attended Thursday’s session.
The governor thanked various exhibitors for taking their time to showcase their innovations and products at the trade fair.

He asked farmers to attend the show so that they can gain valuable insights that would enable them produce food in plenty despite the changing weather pattern.
