Abstract: "The initial objective of the project was to attempt to utilize run-off water from rainstorms to grow drought resistant food crops in small catchments of fertile deep soil to which this water had been diverted. It was hoped that, given favourable results, this method of utilizing small amounts of rainfall in order to gain some sort of food crop might be taken up by the Turkana people and adapted to their nomadic way of life. Once a catchment area was established it was envisaged that it could be left dormant until such time as suitable rain fell for it to be cultivated."
