Four young farmers, two each from Kenya and Tanzania, are part of the first agriculture reality TV show, Don’t Lose the Plot, where participants will battle it out for a $10,000 prize. The show is an endeavour to change the perception of farming among Kenyan and Tanzanian youth in an effort to make agriculture a “cool” and viable career choice.
