In 2007, when the last information on pesticide quantities was published by Kenya’s Pest Control Product Board, the country purchased 8,749 metric tons of pesticides – including herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides – worth over USD 34 million (PCPB 2007). The prices of agrochemicals have decreased since then, yet Kenya’s spending on pesticides has risen. It paid USD 126.32 million for pesticides in 2013, a 270% increase in ten years (FAOSTAT 2017).
