A horticultural produce marketer is looking for farmers to supply him with at least 12 tonnes of runner beans per month for export.
Dennis Mutwiri said the demand for the less cultivated bean is rising because the supply is low as farmers are growing other varieties sold while dry.
At least three tonnes of the beans are required per week.

The runner beans, which must be fresh, are harvested and sold while green and with the pods intact.
Farmers will earn Sh40 per kilo for grade one beans; grade two produce will fetch Sh30 per kilo.
