Abstract
The vision of establishing a technology park for the Centre was mooted by the Centre Director. This vision envisaged a self-sustaining park that would have both a commercial and research underpinning. The park was set up in February 2003 and has since been planted with various crops and plants, and exhibits various technologies. The park is managed using a 2-tier system. There is a technology park committee that has the responsibility of making strategic decisions in consultation with the Centre Director and the farm management unit that oversees the day to day running of the farm. The total area of the farm is about 2 hectares. During the year the activities at the park were minimal due to low rains and scarcity of water to irrigate the farm.
