Uganda as a tropical country is endowed with many resources ranging from it's green environment and unique sweet food variety that it's not a mistake why sometimes it's called the "Food Basket of Africa". This is because of it's very fertile soils that you can throw a seed anywhere and it will probably grow. Uganda is so dependent on agriculture which employees over 80% of it's population especially in the rural communities while contributing the largest GDP for it's economic growth. Constant research is also needed to ensure continuous and modernized farming like use of mechanisation and crop research which is conducted at several research institutes around the country. Namalere Agricultural Centre established is one of the oldest Institute still promoting Uganda's agricultural industry today known for its agricultural engineering and appropriate technology. Let's explore this institute how it started, the communities that lived there, it's affiliation to Kawanda Agricultural Research Institute and other centres. How is the institute today and the various research and farming methods being carried out like the several fish ponds, improved irrigation schemes, crop trial gardens. PS: It was interesting for me to learn that there is a village that is called "mu kizungu" loosely translated as "in the white village", to several myths like a pond that swallowed a whole tractor. Let's see which other myths and history is there to learn and break during the tour.
