Most likely, you have enjoyed a dish of aromatic pishori rice as pilau. Do you know where this delicious rice variety is grown?

Pishori rice is largely grown in Mwea Irrigation Scheme-the largest such scheme in Kenya. Covering over 25,000 acres of arable land, the scheme produces over 80% of rice grown locally.

A visit to Mwea Irrigation Scheme is every traveller’s delight. The area has expansive green fields of rice, and the aromatic smell of pishori is always in the air.

For an immersive learning experience about rice farming, learners are taken through a hands on tour of a rice farm.
