In January COLEACP organised training on #Crop_protection_and_Safe_Use_of_Pesticides through the NExT Kenya programme. The training aimed to build the capacity of technical and extension staff responsible for production and phytosanitary treatments within their companies.
Participants updated their knowledge on pest and disease identification; suitable #crop_protection methods with a focus on #IPM; the risks involved in using phytosanitary products; applying control methods without endangering consumers; best pesticide use practices that reduce risks to applicators; and their company’s current good agricultural practices.
This activity is implemented by COLEACP and supported by the NExT Kenya (New Export Trade) programme, established in collaboration with the EU Delegation in Nairobi and Kenyan stakeholders.
