Farmers flock MBAZARDI for Daily Monitor Farm Clinic

By Alfred Tumushabe

Over 600 farmers from South-Western Uganda have flocked Mbarara Zonal Agriculture and Research Development Institute for Daily Monitor’s sixth Farm Clinic.

The farm clinic was intended to help farmers get knowledge on growing and marketing bananas, chili, passion fruit, beans and dairy enterprises.

Speaking at the event Dr Halid Kirunda, Director Research MBAZARDI has challenged Ugandans to seek knowledge if they are to improve farming.

Meanwhile Sarah Nalule, the Marketing Manager Monitor Publications Ltd said farmers in the countryside demanded that the farm clinics be taken to them because it was expensive to travel to Kampala.

The regional Farm Clinic is organized partnership with Agricultural Business Initiative with Heifer International, SNV the Inclusive Dairy Enterprise and MTK as sponsors.
