Abstract
One consequence of decreasing size of land holdings in the Central Kenya Highlands is a shift from extensive to more intensive mixed crop/livestock farmmg systems including acquisition of external inputs to feed livestock and replenish soil nutrients. Inorganic fertilisers are too expensive for most smallholders. The scope of this study was to evaluate manure management options that could best conserve nutrients and improve manure quality.
