Meru is a region in Kenya known among others, for banana production. The crop is sold both on the local and international market.

Towards the end of the previous year, the government of the region signed an agreement under which banana from the region is shipped to China. Kenyans are also working on new varieties the fruit that should be stronger and resistance to diseases such as anthracnose, caused by fungal pathogens.
