Soya bean plantation


It’s possible for each rural household with a piece of land to plant on at least ¼ acre and produce 100 kg of  beans needed for annually consumption of five people. The requirements are few: only 5kg of seeds, a 1/ 4 acre of land, the family members will provide manual labour for production and preparation. Ordinary tools and materials readily available in the will work. The total investment needed to allow a single household to produce the quantity of soya beans to feed them for a year is about KSH 1600 per annum.


Soya bean production is an income generation activity. By investing less than KSH 8,400, a farmer can generate a profit of KSH 84,0O0 on one acre of land annually. A farmer will need only 25 kg of seeds, one acre of land, some tools and manpower. You can generate more income with soya bean production than maize, cassava or bean production!


Soya milk making


At home you can use soya food products in a huge variety of recipes. You can prepare soya foods from home grown soya beans or buy them at a local market. A family of five will need 100 kg soya bean grains annually. A price of one kilo of soya bean grains is less than KSH 84. Two kilos of soya bean grains per week is enough to provide nutrition to a family of five.
