PlantwisePlus in Uganda

In Uganda, agriculture is a core sector of the economy and the largest employer. However, farmers in Uganda face various social and environmental challenges – such as the spread of invasive species, crop pests and diseases which affect yields and livelihoods.

PlantwisePlus is harnessing the latest technology to empower farmers with the information and skills to mitigate potentially devastating crop pests and diseases more readily. Key PlantwisePlus activities in Uganda include youth and agro-dealer training.
