Abstract
Where attempts have been made to employ more intensive methods of land utilization than the uncontrolled grazing of low-producing animals, practiced by the roving pastoral tribes, the storage of fodder as a reserve for the dry periods of the year has become an essential factor in the pasture management of all parts of East Africa. Even in the semi-arid areas, now largely occupied by these tribes, it would appear that conservation of fodder may play a part in future development. This fact has been Recognized from the outset of the work on pasture improvement, and in Kenya a parallel line of investigation has been a search for highly productive crops which can be used both for feeding in the green state and for storing as silage
