|dc.description||A book of one s dreams for anyone involved, employed or interested in Uganda s agricultural sector. This set of four volumes is the demonstrable result of much hard work by many people in the national agriculture research organisation. One hopes such work will one day exist for every ACP country. Volume I provides the general context of the agricultural sector in Uganda. It describes the climate, soil types and fertility, water availability and vegetation in the various regions. It continues with a presentation of socio-economic backgrounds and different agricultural production systems. Finally it presents the institutional surroundings in the fields of research, extension, education, engineering, post-harvest handling and seed production and multiplication.
Each of the other volumes focuses on an agricultural sub sector. Volume II on crops describes the country s plant genetic resources and continues with sections on cereals, oilcrops, roots and tubers, grains, plantains and traditional cashcrops. It briefly discusses such new areas as sericulture and mushroom cultivation.
Volume III is dedicated to Uganda s forestry sector and forest resources: its history, current state and future potential.
Finally, volume IV offers you all there is to livestock and fisheries; the resources, current state of affairs, plus the challenges and prospects of managing and developing Uganda s livestock and fisheries resources.
