The Government will increase its budgetary allocation to the agriculture sector as it seeks to transform it into a commercially viable business.  Following the change, Kenya will become the grain-basket for the East African region.  President Kibaki made the remarks when opening the National Agriculture Sector Conference at Safari Park Hotel in Nairobi.  He, however, did not disclose the actual allocation the sector will get.
