Agricultural sector holds some of the main and major economic activities in Kilifi County. The sector consists of three subsectors in the areas of agriculture, livestock development and fisheries development. The County Agriculture production is dominated by both food and cash crops at both subsistence and commercial levels. Livestock keeping is another major economic activity thriving in the county due to availability of extensive rangelands and favourable weather conditions. There is a wide variety of both large and small stock including poultry and bee keeping. Fisheries is a major economic activity in the county with commercial and subsistence marine capture fisheries along 300km coastline and in the 200nm EEZ resource base.
A modern, responsive, innovative and commercially-oriented agriculture, rural and urban development sector.
