This report aims to improve the understanding of the viability of
small-scale growers in Kenyan export horticulture chains that include
EurepGAP compliance criteria. To this end a methodology has been devised
and piloted in Zambia employing a survey tool based around understanding
the costs and benefits of EurepGAP compliance. For this work a survey of
the outline costs and benefits of producing export crops in Kenya was
undertaken with the aim to help answer this cost-benefit question,
indicate trends and illustrate incentives for small-scale farmers to
continue being part of EurepGAP.
