ACWICT partners with county to train farmers

The County Government of Nakuru in Collaboration with the African Centre for Women, Information and Communications Technology (ACWICT) conducted a three days training for selected farmers and extension officers drawn from the 11 Sub counties.

The training is aimed at equipping the Trainers of Trainees (ToT) on the use of ICT in agriculture under the sustainable climate-adapted and digitally-enabled agriculture for an enhanced food security project.

Using technology supports farmers by facilitating access to markets through real-time data on market prices, weather forecasts, information on pests, seed varieties and planting techniques. It will also enable farmers to increase their productivity since farmers have access to vital information pertaining to sowing, crop protection, and improving soil fertility among others.
