    The Kitui area, Eastern Province of Kenya, is located about 170 kilometres east of Nairobi. Kitui town is located in the mid altitude zone at about 1150m. “Inyuu” town is the lowest place, and is 680m above sea level. Humidity varies along these zones. The highland areas are generally more humid and have a longer crop growing season than the relatively hotter lowland areas. On the hills, the farms are often small at an altitude of 1550m, and terraced farming systems are often adopted. The lowland villages on the other hand, have a relatively smaller population density with larger farms and households further apart.

    Explanation
    The Andes is the longest continental mountain range in the world. It is a continual range of highlands along the western coast of South America with an average altitude of 4000m. The ancient peoples of the Andes such as the Incas have practiced irrigation techniques for over 6,000 years. Because of the mountain slopes, terracing has been a common practice. The potato holds a very important role as an internally consumed staple crop. Maize was also an important crop for these people, and was used for the production of chicha, important to Andean native people. Coca, despite eradication programmes in some countries, remains an important crop for legal local use in a mildly stimulating herbal tea, and, both controversially and illegally, for the production of cocaine.
