Abstract
Cassava was introduced into Kenya in the 18th century by the Portuguese, across the Congo Basin from the west and to the, hares of the Indian Ocean from the east. It thrived and spread because of its ability to flourish on poor soils and to withstand drought and attach of pests which make all other crops perish. These asset’s made it such a valuable famine reserve that the colonial administration prescribed minimum acreages which each farmer was required to plant by law
