Agriculture Value Addition Initiatives need Harmony

Recently on a visit to Butaleja District, one of the districts in the rice growing belts of Uganda, I was on a mission to establish the supply potential of rice only to be inevitably drawn to the other value chain activities in the rice grain business.

Efforts have been made by the Government of Uganda to set up value addition infrastructure like modern processing plants but alot of gaps still exist. I share my observations in this article.
