Edwin Kamau @mahder.akalu. Many thanks for sharing this information on this Forum. Kudos to your government too for this great intiative on the agro-industry forum. With regard to the 24Hr composting machine, this is a versatile technology that enables us convert organic food and animal waste (which contaminates the environment) into a resource that helps increase soil water holding capacity, microbial bio-diversity, plant root development while increasing crop quality production, as the compost is rich in plant nutrients, both macro and micro-nutrients. It also shortens the composting time, reduces the space required for composting and guarantees you quality compost. Thus, a tool for our farmers to increase crop productivity.

A strong and efficient agricultural sector would enable a county to feed its growing population, generate employment, and provide raw materials for ‘intra-county’ industries.

It is imperative to note that agricultural sector has a multiplier effect on socio-economic and industrial fabric because of the multifunctional nature of agriculture. Judging from
