James Shikwati (Director, IREN) and Stellah Amuhaya (Lecturer, University of Nairobi and IREN Academic Advisory Board Member) in a book entitled Agricultural Investment in Eastern Kenya discuss ways through which financial institutions, NGOs, think tanks, research institutions, agribusiness, agro-vets, unemployed youth, insurance, transport & communication, government and other sectors can engage rural farmers with a view of increasing their profit while making the farmer wealthy.

The book assesses production, consumption and marketing strategies of low resource farmers, explores constraints affecting them; identifies socio-cultural and economic variables affecting farming and offers strategies for commercial approach to small holder agriculture.
