    KLEE: A long‐term multi‐species herbivore exclusion experiment in Laikipia, Kenya

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Range & Forage Science
    Livestock and wildlife share much of their respective ranges throughout the semi‐arid ecosystems of the world. As the profitability of livestock production becomes more marginal and wildlife values increase, there is a need to understand the interactions between livestock and...
  4. The factors affecting functionality and sustainability of mechanized elements of water supply systems in Mbeere South Sub-County, Kenya

    The factors affecting functionality and sustainability of mechanized elements of water supply systems in Mbeere South Sub-County, Kenya

    This paper focuses on the functionality and sustainability of mechanized elements of water supply systems. Despite the huge sums of money spent by development agencies in developing water supply systems, once the projects are handed over to communities they start...
  5. Cropping System Intensification as a Management Method Against Vectors of Viruses Causing Maize Lethal Necrosis Disease in Kenya

    Cropping System Intensification as a Management Method Against Vectors of Viruses Causing Maize Lethal Necrosis Disease in Kenya

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: East African Agricultural and Forestry Journal
    Maize Lethal Necrosis Disease (MLND) has emerged as a great threat to maize production in East Africa. It is caused by a synergistic infection of maize by sugarcane mosaic virus (SCMV) and maize chlorotic mottle virus (MCMV). This study was...
