WELCOME TO THE 64TH WORLD PLOUGHING CONTEST

The Kenya Ploughing Organization (KPO) was established in 1966 under the auspices of the Agricultural Society of Kenya (ASK).  KPO is tasked with the responsibility of organizing National Ploughing contests which start off as ploughing heats across the ASK branch offices. Ploughmen who participate in the contests demonstrate exceptional skills in preparation of a good seed bed. The National contest serves as an Educative forum for the farmers to encourage the development and adoption of new techniques in agriculture.

Kenya Ploughing Organization is an affiliate of the World Ploughing Organization (WPO). WPO was established in 1952 and serves to foster a vigorous spirit to preserve and improve the skill set of land ploughing. It is also keen on demonstration work and trade displays, Cooperation of food production enterprise in order to increase world population and Promoting fellowships amongst all nations.
