Agriculture was once termed as the backborne of the economy but in recent past it has turned out to be a pain in the back.
Unfavorable farming conditions, extortion of farmers, poor returns is what has characterized the agricultural sector in the country.
Farmers have always been on streets demanding for better conditions. But the Government has been giving them a deaf ear all this time round.
But the Deputy President William Ruto has said that the government is ready to solve the plight of workers.
Speaking to Kameme FM,DP Ruto has clearly stated that Jubilee Government will continue seeking markets to ensure farmers have money in their pockets.

This comes as President Uhuru Kenyatta continues to establish ties with China who are the potential consumers of the farmers products from our country.
Avocado has already found a market in China.
Recently DP Ruto signed a collaboration deal with Belgium. During the agreement DP Ruto stated that Kenya is rooting for increased trade opportunities with Belgium and seeking to capitalise on emerging export markets to sell its fresh produce, including cut flowers, fruits and vegetables.
