Abstract
A study has been made of the organic-matter and total-nitrogen contents of soils distributed mainly throughout Kenya, East Africa. The samples were collected from sea-level to 10,000 ft. and covered a range of climatic conditions. Generally speaking the amounts of organic matter and nitrogen in the soils proved to be fairly high and compared very favourably with the amounts in temperate soils.
