Abstract
The National Dryland Farming Research Centre (NDFRC, katumani)is located in Machakos District on latitude 1° 35'S and longitude 37°14'E. It is about 10 km south of Machakos - on Konza road, about80 km to the East of Nairobi. Its altitude is about 1600 m above the sea level. The centre experiences monsoonal rainfall with bimodal distribution that produces two growing seasons. The long rainy season is realized in October to December. Within these two rainy seasons, the amount and distribution of rainfall is highly variable (250-450 mm). Thus Katumani Research Centre falls within agro ecological zone IV.
