Abstract
Although it is only a comparatively short time since the scheme materialized, the establishment of a sisal experimental station in Tanganyika has been contem, plated for some years past. The need for such a station has been long recognized, and it is satisfactory to record that means have now been found for conducting in, vestigational work on sisal. The Depart' ment of Agriculture was enabled, through the aid of the sisal industry represented by the Sisal Cess Board, and the Colonial Development Fund, to secure Mlingano Estate in late 1934, and East African sisal planters will doubtless be interested to know the progress which has been made so far in the development of this property as the future sisal ex, perimental station.
