    Towards a Self-Reliant Rice Sector: Expanding production and processing of quality local rice in Uganda
    (2017) IFDC
    This study focuses on the dynamic landscape of the rice industry in Uganda, specifically examining the efforts of SWT Tanners (SWT), the leading rice processor and distributor, to transition from importing rice to incorporating Ugandan varieties into its product lines. The Government of Uganda aims to enhance self-sufficiency in the rice sector, prompting SWT's strategic shift. The company is investing significantly in local rice varieties, establishing a multi-stage milling facility, acquiring land for a nucleus farm, and initiating an outgrower scheme involving 398 farmer groups. The outgrower scheme aims to improve rice quality and quantity, providing farmers with support in ploughing, seed access, credit, and technical advice. However, challenges arise as farmers need to adhere to SWT's quality standards, necessitating a departure from traditional practices and reliance on single-stage mills. The study emphasizes the importance of organized input and output channels for farmers to meet SWT's requirements. Collaboration with REACH-Uganda contributes to infrastructure development, including irrigation schemes, access roads, and electricity, benefiting both SWT and local farmers. The study concludes with projected results, highlighting the program and private investments, increased sales value for SWT, and additional income for rice farmers by 2023.

    Foliar Application of Iron Fortified Bacteriosiderophore Improves Growth and Grain Fe Concentration in Wheat and Soybean: Supplementary Data
    (2019-06) Sandeep Sharma; Subhash Chandra; Arun Kumar; Bindraban, Prem S.; Anil Kumar Saxena; Veena Pande; Renu Pandey
    Iron deficiency poses a significant challenge to crop production, impacting both plant growth and human nutrition. This study explores the potential of foliar application of iron-fortified bacteriosiderophore to enhance the growth and grain iron concentration in wheat and soybean crops. Various bacterial strains with diverse siderophore-producing capabilities were evaluated, revealing a range of siderophore production levels among the tested strains. Clustering analysis identified three distinct clusters of bacterial strains based on their siderophore production. The influence of foliar application of bacteriosiderophore, both with and without additional iron enrichment, on soybean and wheat crops was assessed. Results demonstrated significant improvements in various growth and yield parameters in both crops as a result of this treatment. In soybean, bacteriosiderophore application increased total leaf area, shoot biomass, pod number, total seed weight, and test weight. Similarly, in wheat, it led to enhancements in flag leaf area, total chlorophyll content, total seed weight, and test weight.

    Info Engrais 2022
    (2022)
    Ce document présente une analyse complète de la consommation de fertilisants et des tendances de demande dans plusieurs pays d'Afrique de l'Ouest, en mettant l'accent sur le Bénin, le Burkina Faso, la Côte d'Ivoire, le Ghana, le Mali, le Nigeria et le Sénégal. Les données couvrent la période de 2010 à 2021 et fournissent des informations sur l'utilisation des engrais par culture et par saison. L'objectif principal est d'informer les décisions basées sur les données pour l'optimisation des systèmes alimentaires africains. L'analyse comprend les volumes d'importation, les tendances de consommation et la répartition des éléments nutritifs clés (Azote, P205, K20) ainsi que des types de fertilisants (NPK, urée, KCl, DAP, autres).
