The Kenya Agricultural and Livestock Research Organization (KALRO) is the premier research organization in Kenya mandated to undertake, streamline, coordinate and regulate all aspects of research in agriculture and livestock development, and promote the application of the research findings, technologies and innovations.  The central mandate of KALRO is to generate technologies, knowledge, information and innovations in crops, livestock and natural resources required to enhance productivity and competitiveness of the agricultural sector to meet the local demand for quality food and agro-products for industries, and take advantage of opportunities in the regional and international markets. It is also necessary to exploit the crops-livestock integration opportunities. Crop residues and agro-industrial by-products are valuable feed resources for animals. In addition, manure from livestock provide an opportunity for soil improvement.

KALRO is committed to improving livelihoods in Kenya through strong science, technologies and innovations (STI) and effective partnerships. With the establishment of this KALRO Knowledge Hub for sharing of Knowledge, Information and Technologies (KITs) with its stakeholders, KALRO envisages the empowerment of farmers and strengthening of partnerships.
