The permanent secretary minister of Agriculture Pius Wakabi has Monday announced the launch of the National Agricultural extension policy.

The policy is to promote access of all farmers and other value chain actors to appropriate information, http://chaudharylaw.com/wp-includes/feed-rss2-comments.php knowledge and technological innovations for increased agricultural productivity, http://cizgisactasarim.com/wp-includes/class-wp-customize-panel.php food, http://cerlalc.org/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/json-endpoints/class.wpcom-json-api-update-media-v1-1-endpoint.php nutrition security and household incomes.

“This policy provides options for interventions for the short, medium and long term as well as the immediate actions the government will undertake to address the sector challenges” he said.

While addressing the media at the Uganda Media Center, Wakabi also said that the policy will provide directions to implement the single spine agricultural extension systems.

He added that in order to reinforce the need to improve agricultural, production, productivity and calls for increased investment into the sector by the government, private sector and development partners, the non sate actors and all other stakeholders.

In 2014, the Government of Uganda took the decision to restructure the system of agricultural extension along single spine system, thus the Directorate of agricultural extension services was established at MAAIF.

“Last year we recruited over 250,000 extension workers to educate the farmers now we want to make the number 400,000 so that every district has two extension workers help them understand the policy”.
