Abstract
Some aspects of the meteorology of East Africa are imperfectly understood by practicing farmers and agricultural researchers. Neither group may need to understand the detailed behavior of the atmosphere but some understanding may help in interpreting research resu1ts, tin analyzing production patterns or in guiding research design. The aim of this review is to put agriculturists in touch with principal sources of information and to provide an account of discoveries of the, last few years. Particular attention is given to rainfall which is important to algricu1ture across the whole of East Africa. The difficulty of improving forecasts is discussed because many farmers see this as the main service provided by meteorologists.
