The Coffee sub-sector plays a significant role to Kenya's economy through foreign exchange earnings, employment creation and contribution to food security. It is established that the finest Arabia coffee in the world is produced in Kenya.

In order for the Kenyan farmer to keep on producing high quality coffee, FTOK in collaboration with Progreso and Deloitte have come up with a Coffee Agronomy Manual which is the most recent and readable manuals in the coffee sector that has a complete cycle from seed variety through the coffee farm management process to environmental sustainability in coffee farming. The manual allows readers to engage in the sector with ease at whatever stage they find themselves in the coffee calendar.

FTOK launched the manual and it is in circulation for the farmers to use. Currently, the manual has been translated into Kikuyu language which is the local lingo for most farmers. The process to have the manual translated into other languages is under way.

Below are some of the pictures that were taken during the event.

Congratulations for the Manual. I think is a really good material. Can we have a copy on PDF?
