Dear Terry,
Hi. KARI - Kenya Africultural Research Institution HQs on Waiyaki way can provide you with details on which crops can do well in your area. Through their website they have a question box where you can ask a question and they are good at responding. Here is a link to their question box. http://www.kari.org/haveyoursay/ask/searchsite.php But you must first sign in to ask a question. As regards your question, here is a response they gave another person living in your region and I think it might be useful.

This question was asked by: Ms. Hellen Okemwa

Plant Grevillia (shade tree), Calliandra (shrub for livestock feed), and dryland (Katumani) beans, cowpeas, and pigeon-peas (food crops); also watermelon (under drip irrigation). (courtesy KARI)

If you would like to have your soil tested, you can also contact KEPHIS - Kenya Plant Health Inspectorate Services - http://www.kephis.org/ to find out about the quality of soil on your farm and the crops that can do well there.

Goodluck and feel free to contact us again. keep reading the Kenya Beehive.
