organic cotton

Start: Monday, October 16, 2017 12:04
Venue: Homa Bay
Country: Kenya
Description: We are farming cotton but not organic. That means that we cannot export or compete effectively in the international markets, how is your organization going to reach farmers in rural areas like Homa Bay, educate them on importance of organic cotton and how will farmers access the organic seeds for planting at the right time, which for Homa Bay is February. Can the organic cotton do well in Homa Bay county or its for particular countries and regions only. Please assist and advice.

Best regards.

Dorothy Otieno
Homa Bay County.
