NYATIKE, Kenya, July 31 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - In the fields visible from the bumpy dirt road leading to Ongare Owuoda's home, acres of maize plants with sagging leaves suggest farmers here will reap a poor harvest this season.

Owuoda, however, is not worried.

"I am relying on my green gram harvest this season," said the farmer in southwest Kenya. "I do not expect much (harvest) from my maize crop because it has all been damaged by the pest."
