Pyrethrum is the new Gold


Chief Lister
A new Chinese entrant in the pyrethrum sector has changed farmers' fortunes.

In my rural village in Nyandarua, there's a company that is buying the product at 200 upfront, then a bonus after determination of the pyrethrin content. The average bonus is an extra 250 bob which is paid after a few weeks. The company also provides support to the farmers regarding good agricultural practices.

If you have some land in upper Kiambu, Nyandarua or Nakuru, you may want to find out more.
In citizen TV programme ,smart farming they have aired a certain flower similar to pyrethum. It's going for ksh 1000 per kg !
Real gold.
