dc.description.abstract The origin of agricultural state owned corporations in Kenya can be traced back to the colonial period. Despite them being into existence for a long period of time, the performance of these state owned corporations have been faulted as poor. This study therefore sought to find out how planning influenced the performance of these state corporations. The objective of this study was to explore the effects of planning on the organizational performance of agricultural state owned corporations in Kenya. A descriptive research design was used. The target population consisted of 42 agricultural state owned corporations. A simple random sampling technique was used to select a sample of 30 corporations out of the 42 agricultural state owned corporations in Kenya. Data was collected through administration of questionnaires which were administered through the ‘drop and pick later method’. The questionnaire was divided into six sections to cover the objective of the study thoroughly and consisted of structured questions. Data was coded and analyzed using descriptive statistics of frequency, percentage, mean and standard deviation which was achieved by use of Statistical Package for the Social Sciences and Microsoft Excel 2007. Findings were presented in graphs charts, pie charts and tables. They indicated that planning has a bearing on organizational performance of state corporations but according to the data collected, it is inferred that the management of these corporations do not perform this functions of planning appropriately and effectively. The study therefore recommends that effective planning to be made a culture of these corporations if they are to improve on their performance. en_US
