Munya to engage treasury on levies

Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya has said he will engage the National Treasury on the reduction or zero rating of taxes and levies on agricultural inputs, machinery and fishing equipment.

This he says will make farming attractive especially to the youth. Speaking at the fourth Intergovernmental Agriculture Forum in Mombasa, Munya said the high cost of farm inputs and pesticides is contributing to low productivity.
