Penergetic Company during a visit to the school
The Dean Prof Bernard Njehia, Dr. Nicholas Korir and MSc student Kibet with a team from Penergetic Company during a visit to the school. Penergetic is a manufacturer of plant and animal growth boosters and their products are marketed worldwide. SAED is drafting an MoU with Penergetic to help the company penetrate and increase its presence in Kenya's agricultural sector. The company has committed herself to walk with SAED in the development of dryland agriculture at our Kitui Campus. The company will also support MSc students to conduct research in dryland agriculture
