ELGEYO MARAKWET Farmers have been told not to feed their livestock diseased maize.
Keiyo North agriculture officer Wilson Bii said maize infected with lethal necrosis will spread the disease to livestock, and human beings through milk and meat.
Bii advised the farmers to uproot the affected maize stalks and burn them.
He said the county agricultural department is taking data in areas where maize is infected.
"However there is no way of tackling the disease. There are other things we can do to prevent its spread and save farmers from big losses," Bii said.
He was speaking at the CDF office in Iten on Friday.
