Climate change is still a fundamental challenge to the growth and development of agriculture in Uganda.
This has significantly hindered growth for both small holder farmers as well as large scale farmers besides limited access to market, inaccessibility of credit facilities, adversities of climate changes, expensive or poor quality inputs among others.
This has been disclosed by George Mutagubya from Agricultural Business Initiative during the launch of the 4th edition of season 17 of the Seeds of Gold farm clinic due to take place at Ngetazard in Lira district under the theme ” climate smart farming” covering Citrus, Diary, Cassava, Soyabean, Sheabutter, Rice and Maize.
According to Mutagubya, the clinic has helped to solving farmer constraints through addressing challenges and adverse effects of climate change through engagements with farmers and follow up visits.
