Abstract:The agricultural potential of land is largely determined by soil and climatological characteristics, notably temperature, annual rainfall and seasonal distribution of rainfall. The author deals in particular with the last factor, climatic seasonality, first as a measurable quantity, with reference to Kenya as a whole, and secondly in relation to agricultural potential and actual land use, with reference to Coast Province, in particular Kwale and Kilifi Districts. The data were obtained during a number of socioeconomic and nutritional studies carried out between 1985 and 1987 as part of the Food and Nutrition Studies Programme, a joint Dutch-Kenyan research programme.
