Agriculture executive Andrew Wanyonyi said most of the money will be used to purchase fingerlings, reports TheStar.

He said this is part of the county plans to diversify farming.

Mr Wanyonyi said the county government will buy a cooling plant to help farmers preserve fish.

Speaking at VI Agro Forestry after opening a four-day field day yesterday, he said Sh15 million has been set aside to revive cooperatives.

Mr Wanyonyi said the county government will come up with a follow-up programme to ensure farmers apply what they learn during filed days.
