Abstract
Kenya is situated astride the equator on the eastern part of Africa. It covers an area of approximately 582,600 km2 (Jaetzold and Schimdt, 1983). The human population is estimated at about 30 million (UNPF, 1998). Kenya's economy is mainly dependent on agriculture with the main exports in order of importance being tea, coffee and horticultural products. The most important food crops are maize, wheat, potatoes and kales (locally known as sukuma wiki). Livestock have been kept by the different communities for centuries and remain an important sector of Kenyan agriculture.
