Comment on land area
diverging info: the company states its "nucleus estate" covers 3600 ha (the same area size as initially in 1978), another source states "Currently [2010] the company’s Nucleus Estate totals 4629 Ha" (http://www.marsgroupkenya.org/pdfs/Oct_07/Parastatals/NZOIA_SUGAR_COMPANY/PROFILE.pdf , p. 4). One source states 30000 hectares (this probably includes contract farming). The company intended to expand its sugar production capacity from 67, 000 to 180, 000 tonnes of sugar by the year 2011.
