Abstract
Agricultural development in Kenya has been the subject of many studies as is shown later in this paper. Most of the studies have been of a micro type, dealing singularly with some special aspects of the matter. In general the writing has revolved around three major themes which. by implication seem to be considered critical. to successful agricultural development. The assumptions which hy now sound like folklore in the literature on agricultural development are(1) that sound organization infrastructure is critical to the success of agricultural development (2) that correct extension practices which implies the existence of effective's 'staff system' is another critical variable. (3) that money to purchase investment capital and inputs for agricultural development is a constraint. Hence the need to provide cred credit facilities to enable farmers to develop.
