Abstract
This report describes a longitudinal study of maize growing practices of smallholder farmers in the Kiambu District of the Central Kenyan Highlands between October 2001 and September 2002. It builds on a Rapid Rural Appraisal carried out earlier in May/June 2001 - and it was designed to provide supporting evidence and financial data for a parallel experimental programme. Most important was the use and trading of maize forage and manure and management for control of Maize streak virus disease and weeds.
