crop production is located within a different range of Climatic
Zones and Altitudes in Kenya. A wide range of locations provides
close to optimum growing conditions to ensure reliability
of production, with good yields of high quality products.
Reduction of crop plant stress, by use of several locations,
generally ensures better flavour and phytonutrient development
in the harvested product.
