Abstract
THOUGH burning off the vegetation before cultivation is a very common farming practice in the tropics, little is yet known about the effect of this burning on the soil. In the early months of 1953 much new land was burned over on the new experimental farm of the East African Agriculture and Forestry Research Organization; so the opportunity was taken to study some of the changes in the soil microflora produced by burning.
