JKUAT cricket project
A new research project under the leadership of GREEiNSECT partner Dr. John Kinyuru at Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology aims to upscale crickets farming in Kenya to foster food and nutrition security. The mass production of the insects that are commonly available is also primed to produce animal feeds.
The cricket farm at JKUAT will equally serve as a centre for resource and training for farmers and investors as well as enlightening Kenyans who are not aware about the value of edible insects as resource that is available around us.
