Abstract
The use of manures and fertilizers in Kenya is still only in its infancy. The coffee industry as a whole uses a fair quantity of both organicmanures and the concentrated chemical fertilizers; the cereal farmers generally much less. However, many coffee planters and some cereal farmers have evolved definite manurial programmes.Under normal conditions the dealers in fertilizers carry stocks adequate to meet the ordinary demands and, should an extraordinary demand arise, such as that caused by the recent severe coffee thrips infestation, were able rapidly to replenish stocks by cable orders. To-day, matters are rather different and one has to look around for substitutes
