Watermelon is Replacing Maize in Nyanza.

The higher flour prices could make you think that farmers are making a killing. Well that is not happening but one farmer in Nyanza says he has substituted (sic) himself from growing cereals for  the more paying watermelons. He used to make about 10k per acre from maize but he can comfortable to do 20k after only 2months planting watermelons.
One well grown water melon can fetch close to 150 shillings or higher depending on the market. With this price and given the numbers that are produced per stem you will be laughing your way to the bank if you have optimum produce. The trick then will be to find the right seeds and Kenya Seed will not fail you on this.
