Abstract
In many parts of Kenya, including the arable or mixed farming areas, the natural veldt grasses are often coarse and of rather low carrying capacity. The species present are the survivors of the unfavourable treat:nent which has been accorded to the pasturage by irregular grazing and by the frequent destruction of the herbage in the dry seasons by grass fires, which cause the more delicate (and usually more palatable) species to disappear.
