In Kenya drought sharply reduced the maize crop, causing famine

conditions in some areas, towards the relief of which surplus maize

was donated by the United States. In the rest of east Africa the effects

of the drought were less servere, but some food products wera in short

supply in Uganda and thera were crop failures in parts of Tanganyika. ^

Coffee and sisal production increased substantially in Kenya, reflecting

the progress of 'African production under the Swynnerton Plan. In Uganda

coffee production was a record, but the output of cotton, the other main

export, fell slightly. Tanganyika's output of coffee increased, but

sisal and cotton showed little change.
