High yield plants

This article was originally published in Foodnews

KENYA has introduced two high-yielding passion fruit varieties that may boost production of the crop by nearly half, reports Bloomberg. The Brazil and KP14 varieties are being distributed by the Kenya Agricultural Research Institute and will be planted by farmers this season. The crop is processed and mainly exported to Europe. Annual Kenyan production of passion fruit currently stands at 8 200 tonnes a year and the crop generates KES154 million (USD1.9 million) at the farm gate. About 45 000 seedlings will be distributed and may boost output by as much as 4 000 tonnes per year.
