Abstract
KARl Katumani is responsible for developing and disseminating technologies for dry land farming in Machakos, Makueni, Kitui, Mwingi, and Taita Taveta districts and other arid and semi-arid lands (ASALS) in the country. The mandate districts have a total land area of about 6 million hectares, out of which 4 million Ha are arable with an estimated 500,000 farm households and a human population of about 3 million. The region is characterized by frequent famines, high poverty levels and widespread land degradation. A number of research efforts have been initiated by the Centre to reverse this trend and some of them have already started bearing fruits.
