Characteristics of horticulture farming include;

  • It requires a lot of farm inputs e.g fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides hence needs high capital outlay.
  • The farms are smaller in size except for the large scale flower farms in Naivasha
  • Farms are located in areas with good and reliable transport infrastructure since horticultural products are highly perishable.
  • Advanced scientific techniques of crop production are applied to ensure high yields.
