Coffee farmers in Central Kenya adopt climate-friendly crop to boost yields courtesy of Tree Nation and other partners.

ο»Ώ
With climate change, agriculture bears the brunt. Crops have specific climatic conditions for them to give maximum yields. When these conditions change, it becomes hard for farmers and their crops to survive.
Farmers in central region of Kenya say coffee crop is bearing the brunt of the effects of climate change by becoming susceptible to diseases and pests that vary according to heat and humidity.
Coffee is a fragile crop that can succumb to shifts in weather patterns and now farmers have embraced and adopted more climate-resilient propagated coffee varieties.

                      Coffee farmers need more support from the local government as the crop is environmental friendly and it's good for human consumption

                        This comes at an optune time when farmers in central Kenya has been crying foul for lack of good yields and coffee doing bad in the market. This will go a long way to motivate farmers and boost the people's livelihood.

                          Many people in the central region rely on coffee farming for everything.That is how they raise their kids and provide for the rest of the family.It is a cash crop that is mostly relied on.So this is good news to farmers.
