Kenyan cabinet approves commercial farming of Bt cotton

The Kenyan cabinet recently approved the commercial farming of Bt cotton hybrids following the successful completion of field trials over five years. This was done to ensure farmers earn more from the crop through increased production. It will also boost the manufacturing pillar of the government’s Big 4 Agenda, the president’s office said in a statement. Kenya seeks to establish itself as a regional leader in textile and apparel production.

The cabinet meeting chaired by President Uhuru Kenyatta also approved the coming into operation of the New Kenya Planters Cooperative Union (KPCU).
The cabinet also discussed the issue of pending bills and reiterated that all arms of the government should move quickly to settle all bills that were audited and verified by the office of the auditor general.
