She said the company recently introduced AHL 252 and SMS push messages to assist tobacco farmers follow the marketing trends.
“We are living in a technologically advanced era and farmers should not be left behind,” Ndanga said.
She said the meeting was aimed at reviewing the 2019 tobacco season.
Ndanga then urged the growers to produce the leaf in line with given quotas.
One of the farmers, Baito Batsuman, from Chiunjira village said the growers were still facing numerous challenges.
