Like other sub-Saharan countries, land and water resources are becoming even scarcer and arable land in Kenya has decreased from about 5 ha per person in 1960 to 0.2 ha per person in 1998. The high population growth has contributed to this decline, but it is evident that agricultural production has also kept pace perhaps because it was based on intensification policies, which are no longer feasible. Coupled with lack of appropriate technologies, this decline in per capita arable land is the main cause of declining food security and increasing poverty, which the country has been experiencing over the last decade.
