In this paper, we present an optimized Machine Learning (ML) algorithm for predicting land suitability for crop (sorghum) production, given soil properties information. We set-up experiments using Parallel Random Forest (PRF), Linear Regression (LR), Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA), KNN, Gaussian Naïve Bayesian (GNB) and Support Vector Machine (SVM). Experiments were evaluated using 10 cross fold validation. We observed that, parallel random forest had a better accuracy of 0.96 and time of execution of 1.7 sec. Agriculture is the main stream of food security.

The land registration system in Kenya was established in 1897 to support land registration for white settlers who had come into the country during the 19th Century. In the last one hundred years that the system has been in existence it has remained relatively the same; registry records are kept in paper format and the majority of operations are carried out on manual basis. This lack of a modern registration system has contributed to problems in land administration in the country.

Land administration arrangements and practices in any country influence the pace and outcomes of social and economic developments. Since the United Nations adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), nations have been encouraged to take initiatives to attain the SDG targets. As a key factor in development therefore, how land administration arrangements and governance practices contribute to the attainment of the SDG goals becomes an important national, regional and global question.

Under the new Constitution of Kenya, 2010, the County Government is now vested with the authority to ensure that land owned by county residents is used for the purposes it has been intended for by the Director of Physical Planning established under the Physical Planning Act. This means that if you intend to buy agricultural land and convert it into commercial use, you will be forced to seek approval for this kind of change of user of the land.

Land Registration and Administration in Kenya is currently operated on a multi-legal platform [UN 2013]. The Land Registration Act No. 3 of 2012 (LRA) was in that regard enacted to consolidate, harmonize and rationalize land registration goals; which are yet to be achieved. This is majorly because in as much as the 2012 statute repealed five out of the seven major land registration laws, they all remain in force under LRA’s transitional clauses. The Government of Kenya is making efforts to avail land registration information online via the e-citizen platform.
