Solutions for the next 50 years
Demand for food is growing at the same time the supply side faces constraints in land and farming inputs.
The world’s population is on track to reach 9.7 billion by 2050 on which Uganda has a 0.59%. And then there are increasing environmental pressures, such as climate change and the economic impact of catastrophic weather events, and social pressures, including the push for more ethical and sustainable farm practices, such as higher standards for farm-animal welfare.
All farmers need to have knowledge on the efficient and sustainable use of Agro inputs for higher yields and lower costs by identifying and predicting deficiencies.
