Experts: Indigenous Seeds Best for Kenya's Food Security

Kenya should come up with policies that will secure the sovereignty of her seeds in a bid to enhance food security and conserve the indigenous seeds variety.

Systems should also be put in place to identify and document all Kenyan seed varieties to protect sovereignty, history and boost food security.

These were some of the sentiments by stakeholders in the agriculture sector who converged in Nakuru to discuss on seed systems in Kenya and the effect of open source seeds systems on food security.

This comes at a time when most farmers have to depend on commercially produced seeds which though said to be high-producing, are not necessarily cost and ecosystem-friendly.
