Introduction 

Kenya Plant Health Inspectorate Service (KEPHIS) is a state corporation which was established in 1996 as a regulatory agency. It is mandated to:

  1.   Coordinate all matters relating to crop pests and disease control;
  2. Undertake inspections, testing, certification, quarantine control, variety testing and description of seed and planting materials.

Inspections and certifications are based on the appropriate procedures derived from national legislations (Plant Protection Act (Cap 324) and Plant Varieties Act (Cap 326)).

In Kenya, most of the fruit tree planting materials are propagated by seeds and vegetative means and are sourced from nurseries.  Most of these nurseries operate as small scale and medium scale businesses.   Other nurseries are government institutional nurseries which include Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (KARI), Kerio Valley Development Authority (KVDA), Tana and Athi River Development Authority (TARDA), GK prisons, among others. The nurseries usually provide planting materials within their localities.

s

The overall objective of nursery inspections is to ensure that farmers have access to clean propagation material which is free from pests and diseases. Also:

  • To ascertain the status of the nurseries
  • To certify compliance to phytosanitary requirements, and
  • To prevent introduction and spread of harmful pests and diseases through exchange of plant materials

The target nurseries are those producing fruit tree seedlings.

The attached list comprises of nurseries inspected by KEPHIS and found to have nursery management systems in place to control pests and diseases.

Disclaimer: The nursery materials can only be confirmed to be clean at the time of inspection and KEPHIS does not bear any responsibility for any propagation materials found infested after inspection
