Boochs3 REVIEW ABSTRACT This article reviews the state of the art with respect to the environmental effects of irrigated agriculture on water and soil quality in arid and semi-arid regions on a field scale. Like many of Kenya’s arid and semi-arid areas, water shortages and drought are a perpetual risk in Sakai. The use of appropriate maize varieties and proper agronomic practices can help ensure that healthy maize crops continue to be produced in a future increasingly influenced by climate change.
