Farmers in Migori have got a boost from Food Agricultural Organisation [FAO] on how to do value addition and market access for their produce.

Food Agricultural Organisation Country Director Hamisi Muo said that the training and business school the organization offers will spearhead the value addition in chicken production, beans growing and also help in access to the market for many chicken farmers across Migori County.

He said that the 40 county officers in the department of agriculture have been trained and were graduating to help cascade the information to other farmers across the entire county.

At the same time Migori County chief officer for agriculture Elijah Gambere said that the training will go along way in making many farmers produce more quality products that will find it easy for them to access the already flooded markets.

He added that the training and graduation by FAO involves quality production that will meet the markets demands and also make the farmers be self sufficient and able to make a living in farming and other agricultural activities.

Farmers said that the training will help do value additions to the common farming methods and also make them access the markets much easier than before.
