Training Of Farmers To Boost Coffee Production


The facilitation provided by USAID through Feed the Future Uganda Enabling Environment for Agriculture is highly appreciated and will have a significant contribution to the government’s target of 20 million 60kg-bags by 2025.

The total investment in the last three years stands at over sh112.86b (in warehouse construction, refurbishment to meet certification needs, Grading Equipment and Capacity Building).

Speaking at the launch of the Aquaculture Training Manual and Guide in Kampala on Thursday, the Minister of Agriculture, Animal Industry & Fisheries, Vincent Ssempijja Bamulangaki said the demand for coffee increase by 3% every year, which creates insatiable demand for the product due to low production.

He said the National Coffee Research and Development Agenda (NCRDA) aims to effectively contribute to the national target of attainment of production of 20 million bags by 2025, a big boost towards attaining the middle income status.
