dc.description.abstract The horticulture industry in Kenya plays an important role in food security, employment creation, and poverty alleviation (Agricultural Sector Coordination Unit [ASCU], 2011). The sector contributes enormously to food security and household incomes to a majority of Kenyan producers who carry out one form of horticultural production or another and it employs over six million Kenyans both directly and indirectly thus improving on their livelihoods (Ministry of agriculture, 2010a). However the potential for horticultural production in the Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASALs) of Kenya has not been fully utilized to be of help to the communities living in those regions (Ministry of Agriculture, 2010b). This is because farming in Kenya is mainly rain fed and the arid and semi arid regions lack of sufficient rainfall to support sustainable rain fed farming (Ministry of Agriculture, 2010b). en_US
