Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organization plans to introduce Biotechnology Maize (Bt Maize) to farmers in the next three years to reduce yield losses caused by fall armyworms and stalk borer.

KALRO Director-General Dr. Eliud Kireger told journalists in Kisumu that research on Bt Maize is at an advanced stage, with plans of introducing it in the Kenyan market in 2023.

According to the Director-General, the trials by KALRO show that Bt Maize effectively controls maize infestation and damage by the two major pests affecting maize production in the country.

He added that once the new variety is approved by the government, it will help in addressing losses incurred as a result of the pests.

“The new variety being developed in South Africa will be in stores to help farmers fight fall armyworms and stalk borer,” he said.

Researchers believe that Bt Maize will directly contribute to the country’s national aspirations and goals of improving the agricultural sector through the use and adaptation of appropriate technologies to address national food security.
