Abstract
The remarks which follow are based on a tour recently undertaken in the Njoro-Rongai-Solai-Subukia area. The area consists of a cross-section of the Rift Valley from the neighbourhood of Njoro at an altitude of 7,100 ft. through the Rongai and Solai areas, falling to 5,500 ft. in the Solai Valley, and rising again to Subukia on the eastern slopes of the Rift Valley. The coffee areas in the Solai Valley and in Subukia were not included in the survey. Most of the farm records referred to in the following account relate to the open flattish country on the old lake deposits of Njoro, Rongai and the area between Menengai crater and the Thomson's Falls escarpment. They come within the zone designated Rongai-Solai in the Agricultural Census and Crop Reports.
