Kisima has invested in arable equipment that places the farm at the forefront of Kenyan arable production.


Kisima produces wheat and barley as its primary crops. There are two distinct cropping seasons per year, with harvesting and planting occurring at the same time.  No land is planted to cereals both seasons, and a range of rotation crops are used, primarily peas, oil seed rape and potatoes.

Recent priorities have been the adoption of satellite guidance systems for precision agriculture and controlled traffic, and the development of no tillage and controlled traffic systems (conservation agriculture) for optimal soil moisture conservation (direct drilling techniques).

Arable operations are supported by 3,000 tonnes of grain storage capacity, and two 30 tonne per hour capacity driers.

Bedford has helped accomplish over 200 of its partners’ major conservation goals. They inspire everyone to care for the planet.
