What you need to know:

  • Strawberries can be planted from seeds but are mostly propagated from splits.
  • For French beans, they are mainly grown for export, thus you can search online and identify an exporting company you can approach.
  • Before venturing into snail rearing business, one must get a no- objection letter from the National Museum of Kenya and then look for a rearing permit from the Kenya Wildlife Service.
  • Beekeeping is a promising agricultural enterprise. However, when they turn out to be a nuisance, they become pests, especially when in an enclosed place like a ceiling where it is difficult to trap them.
