SIANI Annual Meeting 2022: Agri-Gold Mixed Farm

  1. 1. AGRI-GOLD MIXED FARM “EAT CLEAN AND GREEN. EAT ORGANIC” BY BOONABANA DIANAH +256701735452
  2. 2. PROBLEM STATEMENT •There is a sophisticated and growing market demand for organically grown, fresh fruits and vegetables in our local market which doesn’t match with the increasing demand for them. In western Uganda close to 80% of fruit and vegetable growing farms use inorganic techniques of farming like use of chemically made pesticides and insecticides. •This has forced a growing number of people to buy the expensive imported fruits and vegetables which are chemical free but of low quality.
  3. 3. SOLUTION AND UNIQUENESS We use present and future organic farming techniques to produce organic, tasty, and nutritional vegetables. We start with an existing farm that has an experience of three years in organic growing of fruits and vegetables. To that we add in the production of strawberries will allow double utilization of the climate controlled portion of the overhead.
  4. 4. HOW TO TRANSFORM FOOD SYSTEM INTO SOMETHING SUSTAINANBLE RESILIENT AND INCLUSIVE •Reducing the prices of agro-inputs to make them more affordable for rural farmers and even people living below the poverty line which is common in Africa. •Empowering women as the key engines and pace makers for most of the agricultural activities through training them on modern farming technologies. •Preventing climate change and its negative effects like prolonged droughts. This can be done through reducing on deforestation . •Making agriculture lessons compulsory even in lower learning institutions and make the young people love agriculture since a tree can only be easily bent while still young. This will promote utilization of idle resources.
  5. 5. HOW SIANI AS A NETWORK CAN CONTRIBUTE IN THE FUTURE Through supporting agribusiness Incubation centers in upper learning institutions as this can help students fin tune their agribusiness ideas and bring them to reality. Through supporting agriculture clubs in lower institutions of learning to make young people love and appreciate agriculture. Through working with different NGOs that promote agriculture so that they can train rural farmers modern farming techniques.
  6. 6. THANK YOU
