Title:Kenya's new breed of tea planter
Author:Grenfell, J.
Periodical:Finance & Development - International Monetary Fund and World Bank
Geographic term:Kenya
Abstract:The tea nurseries at Kangaita (Kirinyaga Distr.) and at Kabianga (Kericho Distr.) are among the largest tea nurseries in the world, and the seedlings reared there are the source of life of one of the most successful development programs under way anywhere in East Africa, the development of Kenya's smallholder tea. In 1961 smallholder accounted for only 6% of the acreage under tea. In 1967 they account for 23% and will soon accounjr for more. It is with this development of smallholder tea cultivation - an outstandingly successful feature of the general development of African agriculture in Kenya since World War II - that this article is concerned.
