Follow us on:

July 25 (Bloomberg) -- The Kenya Tea Development Agency will import 65,000 metric tons of fertilizer this year, a 16 percent increase from 2010, The Standard reported.

The higher amount is being purchased because more farmers have elected to import their fertilizer via the authority, the Nairobi-based newspaper said. The chemicals were bought from Azumores SA, a Romanian company, it said.

The first consignment of 31,000 tons arrived at the port of Mombasa on July 22 and the rest will arrive in mid-August, the newspaper said.

Kenya is the world’s largest exporter of black tea.
