Abstract
Investigations to determine the suitability and distribution of soils for cash crop development (with special reference to tobacco and coconuts) were carried out at a "semi-detailed" level of surveying over an area of approximately 83,000 acres, embracing much of the Lower Ramisi Valley; lands between Kikoneni and Jombo to the South; and the Shimba Hills Settlement to the North-East. Though not extending as far as the immediate coastal strip, the entire Project Area lies within the climatic zone of Coastal Influence. The precise boundaries can be determined from the six accompanying Soil Maps (at 1 : 12,500). Suffice to note that the project area bOrders on the Shimba Hills Forest, Buda Forest, Mrima Forest and Jombo Forest reserves; and is represented on the Survey of Kenya 1 : 50,000 sheets - 200/iv (Msambweni) and 200/iii(zombo).
