The area is within the research mandate of the National Dryland Farming Research Centre (NDFRC), Katumani. It’s one of the cluster sites of Katumani and a general participatory rural appraisal was carried out in 1996. Besides, Kenya Soil Survey (KSS) had done a reconnaissance soil survey in the area.
