This is one of 280 summaries describing key outputs from the projects
run by DFID's 10-year Renewable Natural Resources Research Strategy
Summary for Project title: R8281: Linking the demand for, and supply of,
agricultural production and post-harvest information in Uganda and
R8429: Linking supply and demand in Uganda phase 2.
People who advise farmers - government, non-government and private
enterprise - can now use a checklist to make sure that they give farmers
the information farmers want, in a form that farmers can use. Most poor
farmers in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia just don't get
user-friendly information that would help them decide how to make best
use of their land and resources. The checklists reinforce the trend in
agricultural information and extension towards demand-driven services.
They're now used by national agricultural advisory services and
universities in Uganda, private agricultural advisory services, and
research and extension organisations. And, because they're not specific
to any location or culture they have a huge potential to be used
