Agriculture CS Hon Peter Munya has said the regulations that will guide the Warehouse Receipt System (WRS), have been put out in the public to undergo validation.
The Warehouse Receipt System require farmers to store their maize in secure warehouses, be issued with a receipt and wait for the the right price to sell their maize.
The system, part of a raft of reforms promoted under H.E. President Uhuru Kenyatta and being implemented by Hon Munya, will lead to higher earnings for farmers, traders and all involved in the cereal value chain.
Public participation is a major legal requirement for the government to undertake for the process to be tested and owned by the public. CS Munya has appealed to the public to make their views on the regulations known.
