Crop diversification decisions: the case of vanilla in Uganda Adam M. Komarek The University of Sydney, Australia Abstract This article provides a micro-level foundation for the analysis of crop diversification decisions in a semi-subsistence banana farming community in Uganda. A two-crop agricultural household model is developed to show that credit rationing and crop price movements influence.
Fast-maturing cassava. Thanks to support from the NFU, we helped farmers in the Ugenya and Nyando districts in Nyanza to increase their harvests of healthy cassava by: introducing new disease-resistant varieties that produce more yield per hectare, mature faster and cope better with drought than the traditional variety.
Root yield is 21 tons per acre. The texture of roots is rough. It has straight stems and suitable for intercropping. Matures within 8 to 12 months. Root yield is 21 tons per acre. The roots are either conical or cylindrical in shape and with rough skin. The stems are short with high branching height. Bulking sites Multiplication of the planting materials is done at Mtwapa, Msabaha and.
Using the above formula (1), Dashiell et al. (1987) estimated the population of soybean (Glycine max Merill.) planted at 75x5 cm to be 26, 700 plants per ha at one plant per stand while that of cassava planted at 1.0x1.0 m was 10,000 plants per ha at one plant per stand.In a study on cowpea (Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.), melon (Cucumeropsis edulis L.) and yam (Dioscorea rotundata Poir.
The Average Potato Yield Per Plant. Potatoes (Solanum tuberosum) are a versatile vegetable whose yields depend upon variety, planting and growing techniques, as well as weather conditions. Harvest.
Opportunities for Investment in Commercial Use of Cassava in Uganda Current status and potential for cassava value-added products Uganda produces over 5 million tonnes of cassava annually. However, the industrial potential of the crop is not yet fully exploited. Cassava products with significant investment opportunities include; starch, high quality cassava flour and chips for use as raw.
