Abstract
The semi-detailed soil survey was carried oout at tje request of the Provincial Director of Agericulture (Nakuru). The investigatio was conducted after a site evaluation of thr farm had revealed the there exist different kinds of soil within the farm and therefore a soil survey at semi-detailed level would be revealed to show these soil differences (Michieka,1980). The aim was to establish and describe the conditions of these soils within the farm for arable farming and animal production. The semi-detailed soil survey which was started in August 1980 took two months to complete with the labour being provided for the station. The survey team comprised of the author, two technical assistants and a driver.
