The Beans Project

Dissemination of Improved Bean Varieties in Kisumu, Siaya and Vihiga Counties

The project focus is on increasing adoption and production of improved bean varieties among smallholder farmers in Western Kenya. The project is promoting farmer adoption of climate smart and innovative agricultural technologies with potential for market integration. This is aimed at improving food security, nutrition and household income.
