Cash crops like coffee, pyrethrum and cotton were once the pride of the county. The county government is in the process of reviving and restoring the cash crop production sector of the county.
Under the Directorate of Cash Crop Production farmers are being engaged and registered through sensitization by the farmers outreach program of the Directorate.
The County Government has procured 300,000 coffee seedlings from Coffee Research Institute that will be launched by the Governor Prof. John Lonyangapuo on 10th April, 2018 at The County Agricultural Demonstration Plot.
20,000 coffee seedlings were donated by the Agriculture and Food Authority to each county including West Pokot County in support of cash crop production.
The first batch of the coffee seedlings were received by Mr. Cosmas Korir- Director Cash Crop Production and his Deputy Director Mr. Petro Amechan.
