Nationwide Farmer Registration Exercise Kicks Off

The Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries (MAAIF) this week officially kicked-off farmer registration exercise in the five Agriculture Cluster Development Project (ACDP) Districts of Ntungamo, Nebbi, Amuru, Iganga and Kalungu.
The exercise started with training of top district technical staff leadership which include; Production officers, Agriculture Officers, Sub-county Chiefs and Parish Chiefs.
While addressing those who trained in Data Collection at Ntungamo District main hall, Godfrey Sunday, the senior statistician from the Ministry of Agriculture, Animal Industry and Fisheries said at the end of the training on Tuesday this week, MAAIF started right away with a pre-test exercise in the field to establish whether the Parish Chiefs were capturing the correct information from farmers.
“I am very happy that the pre-test exercise moved with minimum errors. I call upon you all to work closely with the Ministry and support this initiative very strongly for excellent results,” he said.
On 7th March 2019 while commissioning the Heavy Earth-Moving Equipment at Namalere in Wakiso District, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni tasked the Ministry of Agriculture to collect and keep data/records of all farmer households, beneficiaries of NAADS/OWC inputs, report on pests and diseases that destruct farming activities in the Country.
