Abstract
The present detailed soil survey was carried out at the request of the National Irrigation Board in Nairobi, in view of plans to include the area in the existing Mwea rice irrigation scheme. Topographical conditions appeared suitable for such an inclusion. However, because of unexpected crop failures in other recent extensions of the scheme (notably the Karaba area) the fear was expressed that soil conditions might induce similar crop failures in the present area. Therefore a detailed soil survey was deemed necessary. The field work was carried out between December 1974 and January1975.
