Abstract
For over 30 years, Baringo has been well-known locally as one of the most badly denuded and eroded districts of Kenya. Particular attention was focused on the state of the area by the reports of Maher (1937) and Pole-Evans (1938), and more recently by Pratt (1957). The first organized attempt at rehabilitation was started in 1930, but in the absence of extension work and administration sufficiently vigorous to overcome the conservatism’ of the tribes concerned, no permanent mark was made.
