Drip irrigation can be a transformational technology for smallholder producers. It has many advantages over rainfed production and traditional furrow irrigation methods, such as increased on-farm yields, year-round production, efficient use of scarce water resources, and reductions in waterlogging, salinization, and pest and disease pressures. The commercial potential for the private sector to expand this technology to smallholder farmers is enormous, given the sheer volume of potential customers at the smallholder level, and the area of arable land yet to be irrigated.

Characterization of Postharvest Physiology Attributes of Six Commercially Grown Tomato Varieties in Kenya
Temperate fruit and nut species require exposure to chilling conditions in winter to break dormancy and produce high yields. Adequate winter chill is an important site characteristic for commercial orchard operations, and quantifying chill is crucial for orchard management. Climate change may impact winter chill. With a view to adapting orchards to climate change, this review assesses the state of knowledge in modelling winter chill and the performance of various modelling approaches.
