Abstract
The Kenya Soil Survey (KSS) is a commercial component of the Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (KARl) and forms part of the National Agricultural Research Laboratories (NARL). KSS has four units, which include the Natural Resource Unit (NRU), Laboratory Unit (LU), Information Unit (IU) and the Administration Unit (AU). The units work in collaboration and provide information for a better Natural Resource Management. KSS thus carries out the following duties: • Making inventories of information about soils, land, environment and their inter-relationship with agricultural production and natural resource management; • Providing advisory and research services on soil and other land resources for specific or alternative purposes of development on agriculturally and non-agriculturally related aspects; and • Researching on the most effective methods of collecting and disseminating information on the environment, soils and other related land resources.
