Climate Smart Agriculture Simple irrigation techniques in vegetables

Majority of smallholder farmers in Northern Uganda have lost interests in commercial farming due to the unreliable rainfalls and prolong drought conditions in the region. This has basically as result of unsustainable care for the environment and unequal sharing of benefits arising from them (natural environment) by the population. However, some farmers have started engaging in SMART Farming practices such as mulching and using tap water for simple irrigation in the district of Pader. This has been effective and successful to one Mr. Otim Florish Bosco Okidi, a resident of Kiteny East Ward, Acoro Parish, Pader Town Council who is waiting for huge harvest of his tomatoes and cabbages in the month of May 2017.

Mr. Otim Florish Bosco Okidi is modal farmer and an agriculturist who graduated from Uganda Martyrs University for Bachelor of Science in Agriculture. He is currently managing a CBO called The Green Globe Organization (GGO) in Pader District and also a member of the Agricultural Research Team of the GGO since 2009.
