Sources of tree seed and vegetative propagation of trees around Mt. Kenya uri icon


  • The purposes of the survey were (i) to evaluate the quality of reproduc - tive material of tree and bushes (sources of seed and vegetative material) utilised by smallholders, (ii) to evaluate all available sources in an area, and (iii) identify the most important distribution pathways from production to distribution. The survey was carried out in three steps: First an iterative procedure was followed to identify all sources in the selected districts, then a general in - terview schedule was followed for all 230 identified sources, and finally a subset of 72 sources was visited and evaluated. This last evaluation had the aim to estimate the precision of the general survey and to elicit additional information that could not be extracted through the general survey
