Effects of selected soil and water conservation techniques on runoff, sediment yield and maize productivity under sub-humid and semi-arid conditions in Kenya
The aim of this work is to investigate the consequences of selected soil and water conservation techniques and tillage practices on runoff amounts, sediment yield and maize yields under semi-arid and sub-humid environments. ...
Farmer Tree Nursery as a Catalyst for Developing Sustainable Best Management Land Use Practices in Lake Victoria Catchments Ecosystem
(journal of Applied Science, 2007)
Support to farmer nurseries is classified as either hard referring to material inputs (tree seed, water, tools and fencing) or soft (information, training and backstopping advice). Against a background of poor services for ...

The Impact of a Warming Micro-Climate on Muooni Farmers of Kenya
Rainfed agriculture has become highly vulnerable to the depleting water resources in most arid and semi-arid tropics (ASATs) under the effect of climate change. The impact has certainly been very high in Muooni catchment ...
Comparison of satellite remote sensing derived precipitation estimates and observed data in Kenya
This study evaluated the accuracy of four satellite remote sensing (SRS) based products in predicting rainfall (amounts and spatial distribution) over Kenya between 1998 and 2013. The four SRS products used include; ...
Farmer tree nurseries as a catalytst for developing sustainable best management land use practices in the nile river basin: case studies from East Africa
Support to farmer nurseries is classified as either “hard” referring to material inputs (tree seed, water, tools and fencing) or “soft” (information, training and backstopping advice). Against a background of poor services ...
Fostering technological transition to sustainable land management through stakeholder collaboration in the western highlands of Kenya
Application of sustainable land management (SLM) practices is essential to lessen the negative impacts of land degradation on rural welfare in sub-Saharan Africa. Scaling-up of SLM technologies requires collaboration of ...
Yield and Nitrogen Fixation Response by Drought Tolerant Tepary Bean (Phaseolus acutifolius A. Gray Var. Latifolius) in Sole and Maize Intercrop Systems in Semi-arid Kenya
(Asian Network for Scientific Information, 2003)
Tepary bean (TB), a drought tolerant bean variety has become popular among poor small-scale farmers in semi-arid Kenya, where it is predominantly intercropped with maize. Field experiments were conducted on effect of ...
