Uganda Conservation Farming Initiative (UCFI)

The Uganda Conservation Farming Initiative (UCFI) aims to improve food security for smallholder farmers by creating new, and strengthening existing, producer organizations with the overall objective to move small farmers from subsistence to commercial viability. The project works with 60,000 smallholder farmers in thirteen districts of Northern Uganda and helps them to increase agricultural productivity of maize, pulse and soybeans. Through this project, NCBA CLUSA helps farmers in adopting minimum tillage conservation farming techniques as well as strengthening the entire crop’s value chain including intervention in production, input supply, farmer group strengthening, marketing as well as financial linkages.
