Konstantin Tkachenko


The majority of African countries including Kenya possess the variety of rich agricultural resources. The key for successful and sustainable agricultural development as well as for solving the modern social problems is effective and rational usage of huge natural wealth. One of the ways for effective modernization of Kenyan agriculture is skillful combination of modern and traditional agricultural tools and materials available for majority of small and medium-sized farms. The Indian experience is a good example of such a case. Kenya could use it for an attempt to push forward its production of various agricultural goods.
