In this paper, the relationship between climate variation and crop output in Uganda for the period to is examined. The time-varying ARCH model of the crop production function is used to estimate the relationships. Analysis of the incidence of rainfall and temperature variation from the long-term average indicates that it is insignificant. The report analyzes economic and social conditions of Uganda and provides the forecast for the production data of major crops relevant to Ugandan agriculture, in addition to export and import prospects over the forecast period. The study clarifies that, currently, Uganda is not facing an acute food shortage or crop production crisis. Information from collected literature for Uganda to be used for crop modelling for Uganda A.

Area under crop production. Of the estimated Mha of land owned, only Mha arable, and only about 58% of the total arable land was under crop production in [3]. Major food crops. Cereals. Cereal crops grown in Uganda include; maize, finger millet, sorghum, rice, pearl millet and wheat in that order of importance.

“Uganda’s agriculture sector may not be transformed overnight. But making the right adjustments now will be critical to realize the Vision ” With access to more finance, more efficient farming and climate-smart practices, the report says Uganda will be able to reach its potential in agricultural returns. Uganda Multi-Sectoral Food Security and Nutrition Project The overall Objective is to increase production and consumption of micro-nutrient rich foods and utilization community based nutrition services in smallholder households in project areas. Agriculture Cluster Development Project The overall objective is to raise on-farm productivity, production and marketable volumes of selected. Based on data from government sources, the estimated production is million tons of cereals, million tons of pulses, million tons of roots and tubers, and million tons of plantains. The Mission forecasts for an increased production of roots and. Outbreaks and prevalence of crop pests and diseases in Uganda and including neighboring countries monitored Surveillance, collection, collation and dissemination of epidemiological data conducted MAAIF, Local Governments & other stakeholders guided on crop pests and disease control strategy.

With less than 3% of agricultural cropland under irrigation, subsistence farmers in Uganda are dependent on seasonal precipitation for crop production. The majority of crops grown in the country—especially staple food crops like Matooke (Plantains)—are sensitive to the availability of water throughout their growing period and hence vulnerable to climatic impacts.
