Abstract
The system of cultivating sisal in Kenya does not correspond exactly with that ordinarily followed in Tanganyika and consequently it may be of interest to compare the respective methods of the two principal sisal producing centres in East Africa. Broadly speaking the distinction arises through climatic differences. induced chiefly by a wide disparity in altitude. Over 80 per cent of Kenya sisal exports originate from the highlands above ).000 feet and it is proposed to describe in most detail sisal growing in those parts.
