In the beginning of the Short Rains 2018 there were several small scale farmers in western Kenya who used Rebearth 3.0 bio-stimulant.
- While most farmers lost both beans and maize crops during the dry period Rebearth plots were not affected by drought
- In Webuye a farmer called to express her joy after noticing that the podding was increased by over 100% “The bean plants are falling down because it couldn’t withstand the weight of the pods” she said.
- “We are harvesting beans already in only one month + 2 weeks” said a farmer.
- Maize crops on the Rebearth plots are promising and the farmers are expecting increment of over 40% amid all those weather challenges they faced this season.
- There are 40 Horticulture farmers in Western Kenya who used the Rebearth 3.0, on their open fields (not under Greenhouse) The majority of them that used Rebearth together with compost has already recorded over 100% harvest midseason
- In other instances farmers have also been noticing that the product give vegetables (Kales, and other traditional vegetables) longer life, of up to 3 to 4 months in the field, less pest and disease infestations and a maximum harvest.
- On onions, 4 farmers in Homabay County recorded 35% increment in production, but again the weather patterns were worse in Homabay where farmers lost all other crops this season.
