Description: This advisory was developed on 5th March 2010 based on the deliberations held between research and extension staff representing Kenya Meteorological Department (KMD), Kenya Agricultural Research Institute (KARI), International Crops Research Institute for Semi-arid Tropics (ICRISAT), and University of Nairobi (UoN) and Agricultural Extension Department of the Ministry of Agriculture on earlier occasions during which various management options for farmer to consider under different sea-sons were discussed and identified. This advisory presents the potential options for MAM season of 2010. This advisory is mainly aimed at supporting the farm level decision making in Mutomo area while planning agricultural operations for the 2010 Long Rain Season. Applicability to other areas depends on the similarities in soil and climatic conditions of such places with those of these areas.
