    Banana (Musa species) is an important food crop worldwide (Robinson, 2007). About 70 million people in East and West Africa are estimated to derive more than one quarter of their food energy requirement from plantains ...
  • Smut: An increasing threat to maize production in Kenya 

    Mwangi, Maina; Kirubi, D. (FaCT Publishing, 2010)
    Maize smut occurs globally wherever maize is grown. The disease reduces yields drastically through stunting and formation of galls on the above ground parts of the plant especially on the developing cob and the tassel. In ...
  • What affects efficiency of small holder dairy enteprises in rural Kenya? 

    Wambugu, Stephen K.; Maina, Mwangi; Mugambi, D.K.; Gitunu, A.M (FaCT Publishing, 2010)
