Abstract
In the Mumias area of the North Kavirondo District of Kenya rice has been grown on a comparatively small scale for many years. Seed was probably originally brought from the coast by the Swahili and Arab slave traders before the advent of the white man, and planted by those traders who eventually settled in the area. Later planting of rice has been continued by the indigenous population who are largely Muslims.
