Abstract
Surveys of small administrative areas were first undertaken by members of the Agricultural Department in order to obtain a clearer idea of the farming methods employed by the natives of their own particular area. Since the formation by Government of the Agricultural Survey Committee in July, 1935, the scope of these surveys has been extended to include the study of several other aspects not previously investigated. The purpose of the Agricultural Survey Committee is to co-ordinate the facts brought to light by the various surveys and to apply such information for the framing of a policy which it is hoped may avert the progressive deterioration of agricultural land and the destruction of forests, which has occurred in other parts of Africa.
