Abstract
Rainfall is the main restricting factor to crop cultivation in Tana River district of C06St Province The area is used mainly for extensive livestock grazing Traditionally crop cultivation is restricted to the narrow riverine: - - strip along the Tana River, which is flooded, usually twice a year. Now, there is an increasing demand from the local population for small irrigation schemes This kind of development was started by the sedentary (Pokomo) people themselves with the help from churches and the District Development Committee The present state of the four existing schemes in the Garsen region is very poor and further irrigation development requires an overall and comprehensive approach through governmental intervention
