Summary
Kenya, a country that struggles to feed its population, is Jimmy Doherty's destination in this program. He meets farmers who use ingenious new ways to combat pests, and scientists who produce bananas in a lab. As he travels across the country, Jimmy picks roses, milks camels, and discovers how Maasai sheep could save farmers around the world billions of dollars. But will Kenya ever be able to feed itself?
