Summary

Majority of farmers in Uganda are small and marginal, but yet have a central role to play in revising agriculture and increasing its capacity to withstand the onslaughts of climate change, insecure land rights, lack of assured water supply, limited access to credit, inputs such as fertilizers, irrigation, technology, information on new agricultural practices, and marketing. Knowledge, information and international relationships from the tour will help to reverse the situation.
