Farmers Training on improved Agriculture
Agriculture is the back borne of Uganda`s economy. Over 80% of the population are involved directly in farming or depend on agriculture related services for their survival. Despite the fertile soils, favorable climate and conducive markets, the rural farmers have remained poor due to inadequate extension services, unguided enterprise selection, lack of information and access among others.
