    HUNDREDS OF FARMERS FROM ALL OVER KENYA WERE AT NJORO, 120 MILES FROM NAIROBI, LAST SATURDAY FOR THE NATIONAL PLOUGHING CONTEST. THE CHAMPIONSHIP CUP WAS WON BY AN EMPLOYEE OF THE NATIONAL AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH STATION, KITALE. THE FORMER WORLD CHAMPION PLOUGHMAN, JOHN GWILLIAM OF BRITAIN, GAVE A SPECIAL DISPLAY AT THE CONTEST.

    THE COMPETITION WAS STARTED TWO YEARS AGO TO ENCOURAGE KENYAN PLOUGHMAN TO TAKE COMPETITIVE INTEREST AND AT THE SAME TIME IMPROVE THEIR STANDARD. THE AGRICULTURAL COLLEGE OF KENYA STAGED THE ELIMINATION COMPETITIONS. SATURDAY'S FINAL WAS HELD AT THE NGONGOGERI FARM ON EGERTON COLLEGE, NJORO. AFTER A COMPETITION LASTING MOST OF THE DAY, JUDGES AWARDED THE FIRST PRIZE TO PETER WANJALA, 38-YEAR-OLD EMPLOYEE OF THE NATIONAL AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH STATION AT KITALE.
