Abstract
Research, consisting of a Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA) and a formal survey among twenty farmers on fruit production was carried out in one of the Sub locations located in the hilly areas of Kathiani Division in Machakos District, Kenya in the period of November 1996 up to March 1997. In this Division other Katumani scientists are already doing research on pasture and the propagation of cassava and sweet potato. In order to achieve a greater impact, the National Dryland Farming Research Centre (NDFRC) Katumani tries to concentrate the research work more in one area. More about existing research and mandates is explained in Chaper 1, the introduction.
