Conservation Agriculture Division ( Promoting more efficient food production)
This unit is specifically targeting the promotion of improved farming practices country wide and where necessary across the globe depending on the demand for the support services. There is an overwhelming deterioration of soils; and agricultural productivity for most lands has gone down. This unit is to ensure that agricultural productivity is improved and that lands are managed using sustainable and environmentally sound methods. Marginal lands, such as the Uganda cattle corridor areas, which make up almost half of the country, are especially of great concern and in order to ensure continued food support to the increasing population, the CA will be a good intervention. Services are offered on a demand driven basis.
