Abstract
The cotton industry in Nyasaland is one of African peasant growers, and the work at the Cotton Experiment Station, is primarily concerned with cotton problems. But cotton is not grown as a monoculture, and the chief native food crops of the area are included in the rotation. There is also the universal problem, especially important in Africa, of maintaining and improving soil fertility. This article is not directly concerned with cotton ‘problems, and gives a summary of general investigations that have been undertaken since the Cotton Station was opened in 1930.
