Activities


The College Farm was formed as a result of the transformation of the College into a parastatal organization in 1991.



Forestry section
Forestry section operates nursery where different types of trees and shrubs are propagated from seed and cuts. There are also larger forestry plots under construction where agro-forestry and silviculture operations will be demonstrated. Forestry Section is also developing small bee keeping site.

Irrigation

The Farm has 32 ha under Centre Pivot irrigation system. One ha, for demonstration purposes, is under overhead cable sprinkler system. The irrigation systems, using recycled sewage water, help maintain a steady supply of fodder crops for dairy animals through out the year. Plans are underway to start drip irrigation for vegetable production to supply the College.
