The agricultural sector in Uganda is dominated by small holder farmers and many small (up to 50 workers) traders and processors. Value chains are generally weakly developed and the quality of farm produce and factory products are of moderate to poor quality.

On the other hand the local regional and international demand for produce volumes and quality is rapidly increasing and the sector is responding by strengthening the linkages between producers and processors and by upgrading technical and managerial business capacity to meet the demands.
