A.S.K Machakos Show Chief Guest, Mr. Joseph Kimote, The Managing Director Of The National Cereals And Produce Board Visits Seku Stand

We are delighted to have the Agricultural Society of Kenya, Machakos Show Chief Guest, Mr. Josheph Kimote, the Managing Director, National Cereals and Produce Board visits our stand. Mr. Kimote, who was accompanied by other members of the Agricultural Society of Kenya was impressed to see our students with such innovative minds and lauded the University for offering the requisite support. He urged the students not to stop at the A.S.K Show and that they should engage in large-scale production to solve the current societal problems. The Chief Guest also expressed his desire to see their products on the market soon.

Promoting Innovation and Technology in Agriculture and Trade - Machakos national show

After a 2 year break occasioned by the global pandemic, COVID 19, we are delighted to participate in this year’s Machakos National Show under the theme ‘Promoting Innovation and Technology in Agriculture and Trade'.

We have exhibitions from two of our students and we are proud to be sharing the innovations of our hardworking students with the rest of the world.

Erick Nyokabi and Diana Ayuma, both from the School of Business and Economics persuing bachelor’s degrees in Economics and Statistics and Procurement and Supply Chain Management respectively focused on fodder feeds. The wheat grains are soaked in water and spread on a flat tray. They are watered twice daily and in 5-8 days, the feed is ready and can be fed to domestic animals. The beauty of it is that the feed is rich in vitamins, starch and proteins that supply nutrients to the animals. 1 kilogramme of grains will give 14 kilogrammes of fodder feed and this can be done in small and large scale production.

Erick also prepared a fuel gel that he currently being referred to as SEKU fuel gel which is prepared using an analytical chemistry process where a base and an acid are reacted. He had also produced an aluminium jiko which uses this fuel gel.

Enock Nzioka, a 4th year Information Technology student has developed a hardware iot and software to help farmers set up control irrigation. The control is through SMS and the data collected can be accessed through an online server.

Enock is also utilising X and Y axis to give life to objects by adding a Z axis. This 3D printing creates objects from design using PLA and ABS. So many of the participants were thrilled to see the objects printed using this technology.
