Kenya's hi-tech weapon in pest control
A new laboratory in Kenya is a hub for pest identification in East Africa. With sophisticated equipment and well trained staff, the laboratory will be used as a referral centre for confirmation of plant disease and pest problems (including bacteria, viruses, fungi and insects) that occur in the region. Senior plant health inspector, Isaac Macharia, takes Geoffrey Onditi on a short tour of the facility, and explains how farmers will also be able to take advantage of its services to get diagnosis of pests at a subsidised rate.
