Abstract
Prior to this publication, the only soils data for the area covered by this soil survey were contained in the 1959 "Soil Map of Kenya" (Gethin-Jones et aI., in the "National Atlas of Kenya" 1970). Because of its small scale (1:3,000,000), the map provides only a rough overall view of the soils of the country. "A Land System Atlas of Western Kenya" (1971) covers the survey area also; however, some boundaries of the land systems do not agree with our field findings. Some unpublished notes on soils made for the Perkerra Irrigation Scheme are available, although the original chemical data are missing. The western part of the survey area is amply treated in "The Soil Resources of the Upper Kerio Valley" (Siderius, 1975).
