Uganda launches regional agribusiness initiative to boost farmers’ income

Uganda on Wednesday launched an East African regional agribusiness initiative targeting to boost household incomes of over 100,000 smallholder farmers. A similar initiative is already running in neighboring Kenya and Rwanda where over 200,000 smallholder farmers are set to benefit.

As the linkages are being created, the 6 million U.S. dollar project will also strengthen the farmers’ capacity to access inputs like seed, fertilizers, agrochemicals, technologies and finance.
