Hello everyone,

I am a newbie to the platform. I am researching on the agriculture market in Uganda with a focus on horticulture and cattle production plus the related value addition opportunities.. Can anyone direct me where i can get the following;


- average meat prices(beef and chicken)

-average feed costs

-Meat demand and supply conditions.


  • Key horticultural products in Uganda
  • Demand and supply balance i.e surplus or deficit for those key products.
  • Market prices for the key products and where one can get updates on market prices.
  • The horticulture distribution chain- eg what proportion of the produce is sold through retail shops and other distributors and what is sold by farmers directly to consumers?
  • Key industry issues
  • input suppliers- e.g fertilizer, improved seeds, green house suppliers
  • other existing key players in the industry i.e 5 commercial horticulture farmers or value addition companies

Thanks, Loid

Inside Rwanda’s new insurance scheme

Some dairy farmers have started getting compensated for their lost cows under the auspices of the agriculture and livestock insurance scheme that was launched in April this year.

 Actors in agriculture and livestock sector contend that this plan to protect farmers from incurring future losses is one of the milestones that the sector has ever had.

It is a joint initiative by insurance companies in partnership with the Ministry of Agriculture and Animal Resources (MINAGRI).

But, how does it work, who qualifies for such insurance, and what are criteria considered for one to be paid damages? Read more....

With purpose of making agribusiness work for development in Rwanda, AgriProFocus Network is also collaboratively working with different actors including MINAGRI for the farmers'awareness for this agri-insurance scheme! 

Thacien MUNYAMAHAME Dear Alex Uwizeye, thanks for sharing with us!The article is very interesting!All actors in agriculture sector must be engaged for the better use of this insurance scheme!Thanks for the ministry for bringing this scheme, it was needed indeed!

The future of livestock in Uganda

Opportunities and challenges in the face of uncertainty


Uganda decision makers have to deal with so many uncertainties from multiple directions that prioritizing interventions and holding a straight course prove a daunting task. In the next decades, population growth, urbanization, smart technological innovations and adoptions, increased movements of people and goods, not to mention climate change, will thoroughly transform Uganda society, in ways that are often unpredictable. This report looks out to 2050 and presents alternative scenarios, or plausible portrays, of the future of the cattle and poultry sectors in Kenya. The government of Uganda, with support from FAO and USAID, engaged a multitude of stakeholders in a conversation around the knowns and unknowns of the future, such as past and projected trends of societal and livestock dynamics, current policy priorities, technology uptake and institutional changes.

Heifer International Zambia- CAVE Model, a Solution to Improved Goat Production in Eastern Zambia

By: Dennis Lembani- Program Manager- Heifer International Zambia

The introduction of Community Agro-Veterinary Entrepreneurs (CAVEs) model under the Heifer International Zambia’s Enhanced Livestock Trade and Enterprise (ELITE II) Extension Project in Eastern Province of Zambia has proven to be effective as it has impacted positively on the project participants and the community.

CAVEs have been helping not only project participants but also the community to access livestock drugs and services such as training in improved animal management, pasture production, improved breeding, record keeping, deworming, dipping, castration, disease diagnosis and treatment.

Several challenges such as indiscriminate breeding, helminthiasis, lack of drugs and high mortalities due to diseases which smallholder goat farmers had been facing before the introduction of the CAVE model have so far been addressed.
