Develop Business Plans, CS Willy Bett tells agricultural institutions

Public Agricultural institutions must develop business plans if they were to run their farms and agribusinesses profitably, Agriculture, Livestock & Fisheries Cabinet Secretary Willy Bett says.

The CS says most Government agricultural research and training institutions had plenty of land and ran agribusinesses ranging from dairy production and livestock multiplication hence the need for sound business plans to guide them.

Speaking during a tour of the Bukura College of Agriculture in Kakamega County on November 30, 2016, Bett said it was difficult to manage businesses of the Government farms without sound business plans.He said a campus of the Bukura College will be established in neighboring Busia County which was a rich agricultural area.
