“Farmers are advised to liaise with the Ministry of Agriculture and agricultural extension officers for further advice,” Aura said.

“The expected enhanced rainfall in these counties, coupled with high temperatures, may lead to the emergence of pests and diseases,” she added.

“Relevant authorities are therefore advised to stock enough herbicides and pesticides and to enhance disease surveillance, control and prevention.”

Rains are expected in Turkana, Samburu, Nairobi, Embu, Meru, Nyandarua, Laikipia, Nyeri, and Murang’a counties on Friday.

Starting this weekend and next week, these areas might expect afternoon and evening rainfall.
