Adoption and Impact of SG 2000 - Uganda Crop Productivity Enhancing Technologies in Tororo, Buikwe and Kamwenge Districts of Uganda


The objective of this study was to analyze the impact of improved seed varieties, fertilizer use and line planting technologies on farming outcomes.
This study shows that Technology Option Plots (TOPs) and Women Assisted Demonstrations (WADs) in addition to farmer trainings were more effective in attracting communities to SG interventions. The results of the study also demonstrate the wide use of line planting practices amongst participants as well as improved seed and fertilizer technologies indicating the success of the SG 2000 extension model. SG 2000-Uganda interventions also introduced new crops such as beans in Tororo and rice in Kamwenge districts. This has occasioned the rise of income in addition to ancillary improvements such as the quality of education.


Farmer Based Organizations (FBOs) in Ethiopia


This documentary is produced by Sasakawa Africa Association (SAA) and Sasakawa Africa Fund for Extension Education (SAFE) which focused on SAFE supervised Farmer Based Organizations (FBOs) in Ethiopia. The first group is a successful cooperative named Andinet Farmers Cooperative located north of Addis Ababa. The other group is a special need association which encompassed people affected with leprosy around Shashemene (South of Ethiopia). Both groups registered a remarkable achievement and are role models for other similar projects that are currently active across Ethiopia."
