Abstract
To dispose of essential data as quickly as possible particulars relative to this article are tabulated: - Locality.-Bukura, North Kavirondo,Nyanza Province. Altitude.-4,850 ft. Climate.-Hot and humid, with high, drying winds in the dry season (December February). Two crops a year (March /April and August/September). Rain/all.'-66.3 inches (average of 22 years). Soil Types.-On the top lands the prevailing type is a shallow red top-soil, with little humus, overlaying ironstone (murrum) subsoil. It easily packs and, owing to the impervious subsoil, quickly dries out. The lower slopes of the ridge are deeper and richer in texture, varying from black forest to red loams.
