Beginning this week, all farmers in the country will be registered through the Ministry of Agriculture, to determine their exact acreage, production and input needs. Deputy President William Ruto says it is only through such data that the government will weed out cartels in the maize industry, who have infiltrated the trade and made it difficult for the government to address the farmers’ plight.

The DP defended the Jubilee administration from accusations that it has failed to purchase maize from farmers, many of who have not planted for this season.
