Peter Munya said ( about Peter Munya ) : "Although the subsidy came late, many farmers will still benefit because they are yet to plant,” Menjo said.

Peter Munya said ( about Peter Munya ) : "Although the subsidy came late, many farmers will still benefit because they are yet to plant,” Menjo said. He, however, said much of the supplies from the National Cereals and Produce Board should be for top dressing. Agriculture Cabinet Secretary Peter Munya is expected to tour Kitale and Eldoret as from Monday to launch distribution of the subsidised fertiliser through NCPB depots. Munya had indicated that the fertiliser would be available at NCPB stores countrywide from last Saturday. On Friday, Munya said the fertiliser will go to the neediest, small-scale farmers. Farmers had been complaining for months and predicting reduced planting, or none at all. Munya said the money will subsidise 114,000 metric tonnes (2,280,000 50kg bags) for crops to enhance food security. This will bring down the prices for a 50kg bag of DAP to Sh2,800 from Sh6,000. CAN will sell at Sh1,950 from Sh3,900. Urea(Sh2,700 from Sh6,500) and NPK(Sh3,000 from Sh4,900). MOP and sulphate of ammonia will retail at Sh2,500 and Sh2,500, down from Sh3,800 and Sh4,000, respectively.
