Uganda has been striving to speed up commercialization of agriculture to increase local household incomes with the help of Chinese technologies.
Uganda and China have been operating the China-Uganda South-South cooperation project over the years through a tripartite agreement with the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO).
Through the project, small scale farmers in rural Uganda will benefit from the on-the-farm training to boost production. Chinese technicians and experts will continue to share skills and technology on the agronomic practices with local farmers.
At the end of the second phase of the project in 2017, about 3,000 farmers were trained in cereals growing, horticulture, aquaculture and livestock in Uganda, according to the Ministry of Agriculture.
The Chinese technicians introduced the growth of Chinese hybrid rice to local farmers. Official studies showed that the hybrid rice can yield up to 10 metric tons per hectare compared with the conventional rice which yields 4.5 metric tons per hectare.
