This report highlights the soil fertility status of some of the small scale farms in OI'Ng'arua Division, laikipia district, Kenya. The area lies within Agro-Climatic Zone IV. Soil samples were collected within the month of August 1999. The purpose of this exercise was to train the small scale farmers, the Agricultural Extension Staff and the ASAL (ARU) staff in Laikipia District on how to do soil sampling, to enlighten them on the importance of soil sampling for fertility analysis and lastly to sensitize them on existence of Kenya Soil Survey where consultation for soil related problems can be done. On soil sampling, simple techniques using locally available equipments were demonstrated. Soil Samples taken during this exercise were taken to the Kenya Soil Survey Laboratories for fertility analysis.
