Kenyan farmers have challenges getting certified               seed potatoes, a government official said on Wednesday.Agriculture Principal Secretary Sicily Kariuki told a food forum  that as a result average yields remain at 10 tons per hectare         which is way below the potential of 40 tons per hectare.
