Experiences, Innovations and Issues in Agricultural Extention in Uganda

Lessons and Prospects

by Margaret Najjingo Mangheni

Agricultural extensions systems were introduced in Uganda by the colonial administration, in the early twentieth century. It has been a key part of Uganda’s agricultural development strategy, albeit with changes and innovations in approaches, institutional arrangements, methods, and strategies. There has been a dearth documented information on the subject, and this study now provides a systematic documentation and analysis of these changes and innovations, with a view to drawing lessons to inform theory and practice, and to avoid repetition of past mistakes.

The book is organised in three parts: Uganda’s Experiences with a Privatised contract Farmer-owned Extention Approach; Innovative Extension Methodologies; and Training and Capacity Development for Innovation and Reform in Agricultural Extension.
