Answer:

KARI as a research institution has its competence in providing agricultural technical knowledge and information based on scientific research conducted in various parts of the country. In this regard we do offer on contract, Technical services and knowledge to support implementation of any agricultural enterprise, but we do not offer manual or mechanical services like Land clearing and land preparation. For such services we recommend that you get assistance from the Agricultural Mechanization Services (AMS) near you, in your case Mariakani is probably the nearest.

On nursery establishment, planting and pruning, KARI can offer the technical know how based on a contractual agreement that specifies the Terms of Reference (TOR), a detailed proposal giving the work-plan and budget for the work, payment terms and subsequent disengagement on completion. This will require you to visit KARI Mtwapa and discuss the issue with the Centre Director or KARI headquarters and discuss with the undersigned.
