    In order to make ends meet, many poor urban households in sub-Saharan Africa fall back on farming activities, either within the city boundaries or in the rural areas from which they come. The central question raised in this article is whether access to farmland influences a household's food situation. The findings come from a study on urban agriculture in Korogocho, one of two slum areas in Nairobi, Kenya, where a survey was conducted in 1994.

    grazing land (GL) and potato cropland (PC) on a mollic Andosol at Karuri; conventional
    tillage (CT), mulch tillage (MT), overgrazing (OG) and controlled grazing (CG) on a ferric

    In Kenya and the sub-Saharan Africa generally, there have been little systematic discussions
    on the post-colonial struggles over control and ownership of land. Studies ignore that the "land
    question" is not about production alone and consequently have failed to assess its wider
    consequences on the society. This raises the question, "what is the current socio-political
    dimension to the land question and what is the consequence of their interplay with other
    changes underway in the country?"

    Soil degradation, both due to soil erosion and nutrient removal, is a major problem in cassava fields. Most of the existing management technologies that have been developed have had little success in adoption. Some of the reasons are that the technology developed is technically oriented, based on experiment station research with very little farmer involvement.
