With Mavuno fertilisers farmers can expect fast and continuous nutrients supply to the plants. Our crop specific and soil specific formulations will help farmers achieve and promote healthy crop yields year on year out.

    Kenya faces an enormous soil fertility problem. Research shows that in Western and Central provinces, 7.5 million hectares of land are highly acidic. However with Mavuno Fertilizers farmers can benefit from reduced soil acidity and overall improved crop productions.
  • Scientific Research With Constant Improvements And Innovation
    At ARM we are driven by continuous research and collaborations with various agricultural stakeholders. We are always looking to improve on our existing formulations and remain committed to providing our customers with ongoing support and advice on how to best use our various formulations with great outcomes. End result? Increased farmer productivity with commendable crop production.
  • Quality & Affordability
    The cost of fertiliser and inaccessibility in the remotest areas of the country has meant recurrent poor yields especially for small scale farmers. This is a factor that ARM took into account during manufacturing and packaging of Mavuno fertilisers following extensive research and feedback from local farmers. To provide both quality and value whilst catering for our farmers different needs and requirements Mavuno fertilisers are currently sold in affordable 1Kg, 10Kg, 25Kg and 50Kg packaging.
