Abstract
A ten-year study of the restoration of overgrazed thorn scrub country in the Ukamba African Land Unit near Machakos was concluded in 1957. The field work was carried out by the Department of Agriculture with the assistance of E.A.A.F.R.O., the latter being responsible for continuity, particularly during the difficult Emergency years, and for the analysis of the large volume of data obtained. The study involved the testing of stock-carrying capacity of the countryside under intensive grazing management, comparing bush clearing and resting with more expensive agricultural treatments such as ploughing and re-seeding.
