Abstract
This report presents a socio-economic perspective on sorghum production and pest and disease problems in Eastern Province, Kenya, in the context of small-holder farming systems. It is based on information gathered between November 1996 -March 1997; and, in particular, a survey conducted in January 1997. Sorghum is an important staple crop in Kenya's semi-arid lowlands (250-1150 metres elevation), being well-adapted to semi-arid conditions: 250-525 mm rainfall per season is sufficient for its production (KARl, 1995).
