Farmer-led multiplication of rosette resistant groundnut varieties for Eastern Uganda. Final Technical Report.


Groundnut is a key crop in Eastern Uganda, grown for food and income. However, production has declined due to groundnut rosette disease, a major factor limiting production. This project was designed to enable poor farmers to overcome the problem and reverse the declining trend through promotion of farmer-led multiplication of rosette resistant varieties of groundnuts under supervision of the local leaders for increased access to new resistant varieties by the poor.
