1. The Enhanicing Rice-Green Gram Productivity in Northern Uganda (ERIGNU) Project.
Poverty levels in Northern Uganda remain the highest in the nation (UBOS,2016). Rice, a strategic crop in the national agricultural development strategy and a key crop in the multi-anual strategic plan of the Dutch Embassy in Kampala has very low average yields from farmlands in Northern Uganda. Small holder farmlands are cultivated every season with little soil nutrient replenishment. The land is often left un-utilized in between rice crops resulting in reduced land productivity. We propose to introduce greengram in rice cropping system to increase productivity.
