Kenyan physical land evaluation system

Kenyan physical land evaluation system

Land qualities in space and time: 283-286

This paper discusses the methodology which has been developed for a land evaluation system suitable to Kenyan conditions, considering mainly physical and chemical constraints. Land qualities that are likely to limit the suitability of each mapping unit for a defined land utilization type are identified and rated. This is followed by a formulation of land suitability criteria and preparation of conversion tables for each land utilization type.
