  • Sorghum productivity in Uganda is constrained by several factors, of which Striga hermonthica infestation is one of the most important. A participatory rural appraisal was carried out in four districts of Eastern Uganda in December 2008 to January 2009. The main objectives were to study the current constraints faced by farmers in sorghum production and determine their preferences for new sorghum varieties. Group discussions guided by a checklist were used to document the constraints to sorghum… CONTINUE READING
