Abstract
Agriculture is the backbone of Kenya's economy, with more than 90"'0 of the population living in the rural areas and wholly dependent on agriculture for a living (Mukunya et al., 1982). National agricultural production largely depends on about 19"'0 of the total agricultural land classified as having high-to-medium rainfall, and to a lesser extent on small-holder farming. The latter is carried on at subsistence level on the vast expanse of land falling in the category of semiarid to arid, comprising about 81"'0 of the total agricultural land of Kenya (Central Bureau of Statistics, 1980).
